A friend of mine just got a Mega2560 r3 and it wont upload even the simplest Blink sketch. The "timeout" error comes up.
I have read that this was a problem in the past, but does this still exist today?
Also, would it matter if the Mega board was an older board, ie, could the bootloader be outdated or something?
So far i have no idea what it could be, so any ideas would help here, and hopefully this has been resolved already. Seeing as how some of the posts go back 5 years, i would HOPE that it was resolved, and resolved completely.
