I suspect that you are going to need to supply more information to
get a good answer.

1) Which platform is the python program running on Windows/Linux?

2) If Linux, how is the FAT (or NTFS) partition mounted (smbclient)?

3) If Windows, you can ftp the file to the Linux partition (see Python
ftplib) or use SAMBA to expose a share to the Windows machine and just
copy the file (with or without Python).
