Topic: avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout error on MEGA ADK (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

My son bought me a Arduino Mega ADK for christmas.  We already had a Uno board R2 which was working fine.  I am using the blink LED example outputting to pin13 but when I upload to tje Maga ADK I get the following
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
then it seems to upload successfully.  However I dont get this error with the Uno board. I have noticed on the Mega ADK a long pause before the TX and RX lights start to flash and I think it's this delay thats causing the error message.  I am using a Mac Pro with OSX version 10.8.2.  and Arduino version 1.0.3.  The correct board is selected and the setting is /dev/tty.usbmodem1d21 Programmer AVRISP mk11.  From a bit of googling around it appears others are having similar problems, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer.  Any ideas?

Do you have to click upload a second time or do you get the "error" message followed by the upload starting?

No I don't need to hit upload a second time I get the error message followed by the upload.  Doesn't happen on the Uno though.

A big line in red had me worried. I thought possibly its a fault with the board. Especially when I found a few similar posts where this error message started appearing after a while.
