I have a very trick situation, which I'm trying to solve, most probably I'll be able to solve only with a special device.
Here it is...
I have a refrigerator which save some logs (temperature, outages, etc...) on a USB Flash drive. The standard way for retrieving the log is to remove the USB, load it on a computer and put it back on the refrigerator.
As I need to collect it at least once per day, I was wondering how I could connect it to a computer, or read it remotely.
My main problem it's because we are talking about a refrigerator, there is no operational system like Linux, Windows. Maybe a firmware which only write on the USB.
I was thinking:
Connect directly to a computer via USB, and have a SW on the computer to pretend it's a default USB flash. Then I could just copy the file, but I did not find such SW.
Connect a special device that could do both: USB drive + remotely receive wifi connections. I actually found something very close, but I think will not solve the problem, as it should only work connected on the USB, or via wifi.

Any ideas? :)
