I just got an Arduino mega but unfortunately it seems to be a page weight. I tried uploading the blink program but it says
"avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(): timeout communicating with programmer
An error occurred while uploading the sketch"
its set to the mega 2560 board and the mega 2560 processor.
do these things even work or did I just buy a fancy paper weight?

I have that problem with my Uno.  I noticed one message that said I had a problem with my firewall. So I am going to try it on a different system.  It only told me that once.  Most of the time, it just says "no upload"

Much more information if you could please.
See the sticky posts near the top of this section for the type of information that would help.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
