sharing USB mouse?

hey everyone,

i have a Belkin Omni Cube 2-Port switch to share my monitor, PC, and keyboard between 2 machines. i recently got a new PC that has a USB mouse, so now I can't share the mouse.

Is there an adapter that converts a male USB to a male PS/2 that anyone is aware of? This would allow me to connect it to the switch. Or, is there another way to share a USB mouse?

I thank you in advance for your help!

Why not just use a regular PS2 moose with the new PC?

That's certainly one way, and a new mouse is cheap enough. There does exist the adaper you want. Look at this.

Keep in mind for that adaptor to be useful, the mouse has to be a USB/PS2 mouse. If it is USB only it won't work.
