Here is something weird.  Since trouble shooting during this post I was plugging the USB cable into Arduino then into the computer.  However it is working now, getting USB options in the Serial Port menu, when I plug the cable into the computer first then into Arduino.  My USB cable is 6 feet long, not sure if that makes a difference.  So I need to first plug the cable into the computer then into Arduino??

James, I bought the Arduino from Amazon about 1.5 years ago. It had been working OK but my problems began with OS10.8.  Now I do not have the USB option from the Tools>Serial Port, only Bluetooth. Arduino only installed Bluetooth options in the Tools menu.  I checked my Macbook, OS10.7,  and it only has Bluetooth options in the Tools>Serial Port menu, no USB.  I tried Arduino versions 1.0, 1.01. and 1.0.2.  My Mac and Arduino do not play well together.

Thanks for the link to v1.0.1.  I think I am going backwards with Arduino.  Now I get a message   "processing.app.SerialException: Serial port '/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Modem' already in use. Try quiting any programs that may be using it." 

I connected the USB cable to the back of the iMac and got this message.  I am not sure what programs would be using that Serial port?  I tried  all of the 4 selections under Tools > Serial ports the default was /dev/tty.bluetooth-Modem.    I checked system preferences under Bluetooth and disabled it but same result. 

Not sure what to do next.  There is some activity with a backup program running to an external hard drive but USB should be able to handle more than one activity at a time as it has in the past.  The iMac thinks that the Arduino is a modem according to Simon Monk's book "Programing Arduino"

Thanks.  I reverted back to V1.0 and it works.  I do not have v1.0.1.  So far so good.

I believe this iMac with OS10.8.2 is 64 bit and Arduino is 32 bit so I can not use Arduino on this iMac.

I am getting an error "avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding" with the Blink LED.  I am using an LED in pin 13 with File>Examples>Basic>Blink.   I am using an iMac with OS 10.8.2 and Arduino v1.0.2.
