create parallel tables on Mysql database - SlideShowPro Director

I have built a new website to replace the old, and am using SlideShowPro Director. The new site has a different layout (galleries / albums) than the original. I would like to populate the new site with content but not sure how I can do that. My hosting is on a shared host configuration so I can't use a new mysql database. I believe there might be a way to create parallel entries with prefixes on the current  live database without affecting anything, but I'm not sure how that would work.
Ideally I could populate the contents (database) before going live with the new website layout.
Any tips greatly appreciated. thanks!
