You might want to check my Logomouse mod for this. Firewheel might be usefull too. In basic electricity article you will find all the info that you need to calculate that current limiting resistor. If you still have problems just ask but be more specific. :)

Hey go out and pick up the cheapest microsoft mouse u can find...IT IS EXTREMELY EASY WITH THEM because they have a special chip inside that will send power to your LED...I recently just finished this mod and am actually revising it to look different but i used a blue LED (5v that way i can connect it right to the chip) and u connect it to the 5 (its right in the middle of the 9 prongs) prong on both sides...that was when u plug it in to your powered computer u have a spiffy blue light..
