Nevermind.. I tried. Luckily nothing happened. Button doesn't work. I'll go out tomorrow and buy another mouse model... hopefully it will have two pins to make this mouse hack easier.

thank you very much smiley that's very informative.

mainly at the moment... i'm simply trying to figure out which wires to solder to the switch..this might sound like a dumb question but.. i soldered 2 out of the 3 wires to the button. if i plug it into my usb will i short circuit anything or mess up my laptop? probably not since the power is very low. just to test it out.

Hey guys! I need a bit of help with the right steps to wire my logictech mouse... which I modified. (removed buttons , re-soldered new pins and attached wire) However... there are 3 pins for each button, and 3 buttons in total as you can see from the picture. The extra button is under the LEFT click. My SPST momentary switch has 4 pins sticking out of it... I'm slightly confused as how to wire the "three wires" to this button. Seeing as the wires are probably, positive, negative and ground. However I don't know the order of the positive/negative on the switch... or on the mouse smiley-sad. Ground can be shared but once again I'm not sure how to go about this.
Please help... I'm new at this. Thank youuu!

Honestly the driver was recommended by the shop owner, it was hard to understand him since he spoke broken english however... from what I understood "this motor will not run without this driver". >.<

Here is a link with some spec:

Just found it smiley Hopefully this is helps..

And of course the basic wires, breadboard and many other little gadgets. A basic outline for a starter would be amazing... to my surprise I can't even find a basic tutorial to get a dc gear motor running with an arduino.

Thanks for the response smiley I currently have...

Motor: looks a lot like this.. however it only has positive and negative wires... and no decoder. Just a basic dc gear motor. 12v 19:1

Dual Motor Drive TB6612FNG http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/713

Photo resistor

12v relay

Diode

transistor

Hopefully I have everything I need to get this motor running. (the photo resistor I want to incorporate later on... in order for the motor to  differentiate when to spin according to the amount of light that goes into the resistor )

Basically I need some help in order to figure out how to wire this baby. I have all my hardware and programming figured out... however I'm not so great at figuring how to put this all together. No laughing.. once again I'm new at this :\

Hello everyone, I'm quite new to the arduino world... I'm currently attempting to set up my gear motor with its driver. To be honest I'm not sure where to start. I have the driver on the breadboard and that's as far as I've gotten. As a baby step... I would just like this motor to start spinning. Please help.

(Later I will be incorporating a photo resistor in order to measure the amount of light/voltage to pass through the motor)
