Look at photos. Place auger in chuck with points aligned with recesses in the two jaws . Then let it go down all the way. Tighten chuck then until top of jaws go tight to shank. Tighten really well by hand only. Put ratcheting in center so there is no ratchet in order to tighten or loosen.  With smaller bits you may have to bring them up a bit so chuck hies tight to round shank. Just takes a little practice.
 

Line up notches

then drop but all the way in and tighten.

The big ones are impossible to use I’ll stick with the small ones 

Keep turning it , screw point will grab eventually. Large bits take quite a bit of effort. Takes time and practice to get the hang of it.

I see that you have the wood you are drilling set on the concrete floor. Running the bit through so it hits that floor will dull it quickly. Always a good idea to put a piece of scrap wood under your workpiece so the drill goes into something safe and with no damage. :)
