You need to provide more details about this thing you want to connect to. At the very least, a link so that we can read about it.

Well i want to connect the Arduino Mini to my PC with the Serial to USB adapter without buying a FDTI Friend (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9717). This is a LaserTag Project Which is low Budget. Buying a Serial to USB is cheaper than the FDTI. If you still need to know more ask away.

I clicked on all those words. Nothing happened. Time to reread reply #1.

You'll need a USB host shield (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9947), to plug the dongle into. Then you'll need to know exactly how the dongle presents itself to a USB host (does it pretend to be a keyboard, or mouse, or joystick, or something else entirely?), and write an appropriate USB driver sketch to run on the Arduino.

Yeah. Piece of cake. Shouldn't take more than 20 minutes. Or should that be years?

I was just outlining the likely steps required. There was no intention to imply a level of difficulty. If the dongle presents itself as one of the standard HID devices, it might not take too long to get something useful out of it. As they claim that the dongle "requires no custom drivers", that would suggest it is a standard class compliant device. Downloading the SDK might well reveal some useful information. There is a free 'lite' version, but it requires registration.

Gigs and Collaboration is the place for you, then. With an offer to pay.

This is NOT a trivial task, and will require a fair amount of time. If it's even possible.
