    Problems with SainSmart MEGA 2560

    imaginarygoose

      I was recently given a SainSmart MEGA 2560 board from an instructor at my school. It was just sitting around on a shelf in his office and he wasn't sure if it worked or not. When I asked about the board he tossed it over to me and said I could have it and that he wasn't sure if it worked or not. When connecting the board to my computer it powered up, but it's not recognizable on any of my ports. I opened the Arduino IDE and again I'm having the same issue. Does anyone know if there is a way to fix this or is this board no longer operational? I appreciate any and all help/suggestions. Thank you.
