But when you plug it in, could you look for it in dmesg?
That is, when you plug it in and press the button to connect it, can you
run dmesg, and look for lines like
blah blah blah /dev/sdg blah blah blah
then sudo mount it on /mnt (or elsewhere)? (There may be some wrinkle
like you mount /dev/sd-whatever instead of /dev/sd-whatever1.)
Anyhow, if that works, then you can just copy files in and out
of where you've mounted it.
