I think we could get around with pretending to be a digital camera / media
player instead. IIRC the protocol prefered by windows for these is more
like a file server protocol (i.e. commands at file level) although maybe
windows doesn't allow to download files from media players and may not
allow to upload on cameras.
But that should get around the exclusive access problem.

Also there could be an image file which is shared via USB storage so no
need to unmount the SD card.
