are you eating for growth?
That's where growth comes from...nutrition.
As far as movements, I've found that heavy complex movements have had the most impact on arms.
Heavy rows, chin ups, etc for bi's
Close grip bench, dips, skullcrushers, and reverse grip bench for tri's

Yes, I try to get as much protein as I can every day. I eat a lot. But my arms just have not grown lately.

Charles Poliquin has a couple of fantastic arm training books out.
He is the guy I blame for having to take a break from arms while the rest of my body caught up, true story.

x2 for higher reps
When your doing heavy rows/deads and back moves, your bis get your heavy work, I usually cap off my bi's with 12 rep low rest curls or other iso moves using little rest, really need to feel the burn. Also try doing machine preacher curls, or concentration curls that iso the bicep and take the forearm and should out of the move.

I'll second the deadlifts. I'll add pullups (weighted if possible), dips and skullcrushers to the list as well. Honestly, compound movements in general have added more size to my arms than any specified arm workout. And by all means, don't neglect the pursuit of cannonball delts. Ladies love the delts, just saying.
As for the low/high rep debate, I've yet to find that either one has been better or worse for me.

Seriously, the ONE time my arms have grown was when I was doing three full-body sessions a week of the compounds ONLY, at 4-5 x 5-8 rep sets and 30-45 seconds recovery between sets, and my sessions were only 15-20 minutes long!

I trained under Larry Scott years ago. Larry is well known for his massive arms. He gave me a routine that works everytime. Train your arms, or any other weak body part that you want to grow, three times/week. Start with heavy partials and finish with light high rep exercise. Go for the biggest pump you can get. Irregardless of what you are told you won't grow without a good pump. Work your arms first and then other body parts. Do this for 4-6 weeks and see what happens.
