I just got a kodak easyshare digital camera, but my compaq laptop (about 4 years old) does not have any usb ports at all. What are my options? Is there an adapter that I can plug the camera's usb cable into, then plug into a serial port on my laptop? Or do I need to get a usb pc card ( I do have an available slot under my modem pc card), I saw these at BestBuy with two usb ports for about $58. I'm basically looking for the cheapest solution to get my new pics onto my laptop so I can email... soon I will be getting a new PC, so I don't want to spend too much on this solution right now.

You should have a pcmcia slot and adapters are made I did a quick search on www.pricegrabber.com for pcmcia usb adapter and got a lot of links $36 and up Get usb 1.1 as it will be cheaper and good enough.
