What hardware interface/bus is used?  Is this a USB device, a serial
device, or parallel port device, a device put into a cradle connected to
a PCI card, etc. etc.  That'd let us figure out what underlying support

Unless someone is assigned to this project, there probably is no such
date, or it is unknown.  If you wish, you can take a shot at fixing
this; try contacting wine-devel if you want to help.
