Would the hacked version of Wine with USB support assist this person to get this device working?

I'm wondering if the device has Linux drivers that would make it appear to be a removable storage device.  If that is true, then the old map device in Linux and then map the device to a drive in Wine may work as well.

Since I don't have answers to these questions I'm not certain if this effort is not worth persuing further.
