Helo every one. I just get  an arduino  mega  2560 .
  Do I need a programmer for uploading the program  ? Or not ?
Please tell me.  I am just a beginer with these all.

No, you don't have to employ a programmer, you can write the code yourself.

no if you have a arduino mega it should have the bootloader installed, just select it from the boards menu and off you go

AWOL the question was to upload not create, very paulS of you  :0

That's Mr PaulS to you good sir. He is very case sensitive about such things.  ;)

I conect the boad arduino mega 2560 only with usb.
I open  the program:     ( Arduino erg 1.0.2)
I open an example. I do compile. Is ok.
I do upload.

And now its write: Done uploading. OK .       (It can see the board in com 14. OK)

But : with red letters  writes:avrdude. exe:cant find programmer id wiring valid programmers are: .......

       On TOOLS:  I  chooce:   Programmer: Arduino as isp .  (is it ok?)

No. You should just choose Board, then "Arduino Mega 2560 or Mega ADK".

No that's wrong. I use "AVRISP mkII" as programmer (which was the default when I installed).
As I have understood "Arduino as ISP" is used when you want to use your connected arduino to upload onto anther arduino (one perhaps custom built without USB).

So select that, change to "Arduino MEGA 2560 or ADK" under Tools->Board. And if it doesn't work, verify that the COM port used under Tools->Serial Port is actually the one used by your arduino, which you can find in device manager if your using windows.
