Just give it a try. With access to the hardware, it's probably not as
hard as it might appear in the first place. A good start is to install
their Windows driver and an USB packet sniffer to trace the
communication between the host and the device. Then compare this to what
the USB audio standard requires, and find the differences.

My guess is that it only takes a different initialization mechanism, but
I might me wrong. Once you have any more insight or any trace dump, post
them here.
