Are you including the drive letter?  If it’s the G: drive in Windows Explorer, you need to say something like “ls /cygdrive/g”, not “ls /cygdrive”.

If it isn’t appearing as a drive letter in Windows, they’re probably using some kind of Explorer shell extension, which would mean the device isn’t visible through normal Windows mechanisms, hence not visible to Cygwin.
