Mac 10.6.8 programmer not responding

I read about others with this, but I heard it with with OS 10.4. Anyway, fixes I have read on this forum are to hold reset while plugging in the board or to change from tty to cu and output verbose.

My board is an UNO (got it today). At first, network pref would say it found a modem and I would hit "apply." However, after installing the FTDI drivers as a troubleshooting step and restarting my computer, net pref no longer see's arduino (yet I can still loopback).

I performed a loopback test (which I read about here) and that succeeded.

Any help is appreciated!

FTDI drivers have nothing to do with the Uno. Installing them doesn't hurt but it doesn't help either.

Are you connecting your Uno through a USB hub?

No USB hub is being used. Thanks

If you can, try different USB ports/hubs. I had the same error, and for some strange reason, the USB port on my Apple Keyboard worked...

(As a side note, does anyone know how I can uninstall the FTDI drivers under Mac OSX?)
