You may find that the device has a standard DOS file system but a
non-standard partition table. "mtools" can be used to access the
whole device (/dev/pda, I imagine) if you specify on offset to the
start of the filesystem. The loopback device can also be used to
access a filesystem at a non-standard location.

You can probably use od or hexdump to find something that looks like
the beginning of a DOS partition.
