Topic: Verifying and Uploading to Arduino Mega 2560 (Read 570 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi Everyone
I am completely new to Arduino...I have just bought the Arduino Mega 2560. I have Windows 7.
I downloaded the IDE...the Port is COM 5 and I have made sure the board is also correct. The problem I am having is when I attempt the Blink LED example and verify it it takes forever eventually it compiles but when I upload it goes three quarters of the way (takes forever) then comes up with a fault saying: avrdude: atk500v2_Receive Message(): timeout...
I just cannot get the Arduino board to transmit or receive no upload!! What am I overlooking!!
