Please see my EE Article, step by step tutorial, with screenshots, written by me, for novices!

HOW TO: Add and Connect a USB Device to a Virtual Machine, hosted on VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESX 4.1 ESXi 4.1, ESXi 5.0

which is also applicable for ESXi 5.5.

Be warned, not all hosts servers or USB devices are compatible.
