You can use the Sparkfun Serial(TTL) to USB converter:, I have test it with my CMU3 and it works fine.

Maybe your arduino\usb2serial board is also a solution to your problem.

Do not forget to properly set the Level Shifted Serial Jumper (page 6 at the CMUcam3 Datasheet, for TTL-level serial communication. The previous board are not compatible with RS232-level serial communication.
