Well didn't you tried to mount it?
We have here a Trust digicam and since there is an SD card we can mount 
it as a normal sda1 but the fstab must be correctly configured for the 
usbfs and you need of course hotplug.

So if your Dell is seen as a removable disk, then you can mount and use 
cp or mv
