I don't need the script, I just need the windows box to be able to write 
  to the external HDD, and that the external HDD can be changed (not 
when writing, of course) without any manual intervention.

This is the output of lsusb

The device is most likely 001/009 (Sunplus).

lsusb -v shows this (stripped output):

How would I build my usbhd.usermap file?
