Digital camera problem

The camera works fine, and the software does too, the problem comes into play when I want to download the pictures onto my computer.  The digital camera uses the same port as the mouse and I do not have another port of the saem size, is there anything I can do?

If you have a free expansion slot, you could just go out and get a serial expansion port card and then you will have another serial port available, most pc stores should have them, or check on the net.

Here's a URL of what you need:

If you have a USB port you could get a USB compatable camera; they're about 30 times faster than serial. Also, if your camera uses SmartMedia cards, you can buy a FloppyDisk Adapter. It's a little device(the size of a floppy disk) that lets you download the images directly from your 3.5" floppy drive.
