    Hi,

    I know that the device's seria numer s "engraved" into the memory....How can we retrieve it by software?, where is it stored?, is there some regestry key related value?

    Hi,
    You can use GetDeviceID in Hardware.dll, I think!

    Best regards

    It returns the Device ID which is not the serial number (but it's unique).
    Note that not all devices support this function. Some will return an empty string.
    You can also check the registry for the owner name.
