Like alot of other s i am having uploading issues. its not all the time but probably more than half. I have purchased several of the same boards but the issue still remains. when i put a new board on the port does change. I am using Windows 7 PRO Service Pack 1 64 bit. I requested verbose loading report and here it is
Arduino: 1.8.7 (Windows 7), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Mega or Mega 2560, ATmega2560 (Mega 2560)" Sketch uses 6660 bytes (2%) of program storage space. Maximum is 253952 bytes. Global variables use 292 bytes (3%) of dynamic memory, leaving 7900 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 8192 bytes.

Thank you. This report would have more information with "Show verbose output during compilation" option enabled in File -> Preferences.
As you can imagine this is frustrating during debugging (alot if uploading)and i would love some help find a solution.
