SERIAL number - why not print on the cart itself?

Ok, first of all I know Rescue Pro is no longer supported by SanDisk…

But I am just wondering why SanDisk would not print the SERIAL number on the card itself?? Why put it in the packaging?? My packaging is all gone and now that I am trying to activate RescuePro it is asking for a serial number!  :(


That’s pretty much the practice for all devices including none Sandisk product. Just a thought though.
