Hi, you can't directly transfer an image on an SDcard to the PiDrive Foundation Edition, but you may be able to install your app of interest onto Raspbian in the Project Space.
Some background for viewers: WD PiDrive Foundation Edition products features the option to install "Project Spaces" which are partitions set up on the drive with Raspbian Lite installed. This enables multiple independent command-line-based projects to be created on the drive, effectively replacing the stack of sdcards with individual projects.
Back to topic: I did a very quick search on "chipKIT Raspbian" and found this discussion providing instructions on how to install "MPIDE" on Raspbian http://chipkit.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2802
I'm not familiar with chipKIT or MPIDE, but it appears that this discussion might be relevant to what you want to do. There are a lot of added comments to the original post- problems and solutions, etc.
Hopefully others can provide more specific info.
