Upload OK with ver 1.0 but cannot upload with 1.06 or 1.5.8 2560 mega board

Upload OK with ver 1.0 but cannot upload with 1.06 or 1.5.8 . I am also new to Arduino but have experience with other micro controllers . I have a Mega 2560 AceDuino Mega board .
I can upload sketches using Arduino ver1.0 IDE however as I want to now use a GSM / GPRS shield I need to go to a higher IDE ( higher than 1.04 I believe) . I have tried both 1.06 and 1.5.8 Beta .
However with both these IDEs I get a timeout when trying to upload .
I have read a lot of blogs on the web with this similar problem , mostly saying to check the board type and serial port .
I have confirmed the port and the board selections are OK in all IDEs tried and indeed working in 1.0 . I can see the Com port activate when I plug the 2560 in and I have installed the latest drivers in the board .

There is nothing connected to the board and I am trying a simple upload of the very simple Blink sketch .

Appreciate any help with something I am missing .
Thanks in advance .Regards Ding

What operating system are you using?

If Windows is there anything in device manager added when you plug your Arduino in?
