Arduino Mega 2560 - timeout problem - FIXED

For those of you Mac users who also have trouble uploading your programs to the Mega 2560 because of timeout problems... maybe I have a fix for you!

Download the Wiring app (http://wiring.org.co/download/) and copy the two files ../Wiring.app/Contents/Resources/Java/tools/avr/bin/avrdude and ../Wiring.app/Contents/Resources/Java/tools/avr/bin/avrdude.conf into ../Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/hardware/tools/avr/bin/ after renaming the avrdude utility inside there into avrdude_old or something like that.

Now start the Arduino app again. Everything should work perfect now!

The german guys here also can check out my blog post http://www.p0lar.is/?q=node/6.

Enjoy... ;)

is it going to work on a win7 64bit system? I have the timeout problem as well, it has been driving me crazy

I fixed mine.

i downloaded the usb fix for cheap chinese coppies and then selected the correct port under tool in the sketch prog.

I am soooo happy.
