It's the old school way, but you could run dmesg to see whether it's been detected and, if so, how. If it's detected, you could try putting it in /etc/fstab. I did that to mount my mp3 player and thumbdrive back in the olden days.

Dmesg generates a lot of output. It might be best to pipe it to a file, then open the file with less so can navigate it.

dmesg > somefile.txt
less somefile.txt
You might have to run dmesg as root.

Here's more information about fstab:

Note that Apple is not particularly friendly to OS's other than theirs and Windows (because they have to be). It would be a good idea to make sure all your data is backed up first.

This article seems to offer another way:

I hear lots of people get around this by using a service like drop box. There are also file managers in the app store that let you connect to the computer via wireless.
Look for ESexplorer for ipad or look for File Expert for ipad.

you will have to create a shared folder in your computer and put in there the files you want to transfer.

have a good day.
