Technically how AIDA64 detects the hard disk serial number?


Recommended Posts

Hi heroes,

May I know how technically AIDA64 detects the hard disk serial number?

When I run "wmic diskdrive get serialnumber", the output I got was different from AIDA64. how is it works?

eg - 

C:\Users\test>wmic diskdrive get serialnumber
SerialNumber
D
0025_388A_91B3_1ED4

In AIDA64 I got -

SAMSUNG MZVLB512HBJQ-000L7 (S4ENNF0MA12982)

 

Thanks in advance!!

AIDA64 reads the HDD/SSD serial number from the drive itself, by querying the ATA ID block.

There may be a formatting difference. We don't know how WMIC gets the value exactly, but after looking a bit into this, there is a recommended way to query the serial, like this:

WMIC path win32_physicalmedia get serialnumber

maybe it helps.
