The serial number on the bottom of your Clip is a strange cookie!
It’s a laser etched strip of characters along the device’s bottom…but all is not as it appears.
The internal serial number is 32 digits long, and I’d guess the 16 trailing zeroes are not significant. This is the serial number accessed via “properties” on the PC.
My big question remains as yet unanswered: the bottom of the device physical number.
Guess what! It isn’t entirely unique. I have four clips, and the two black 2GB ones have the same serial number! Oh, the humanity!! Run for the storm cellar!! Has anyone seen the cat?
Well, the pink one and blue one have different ID numbers as well. Looks like the 6 digits are unique to the color black on mine, and the last four letters change between the pink/blue as well.
I haven’t received a reply from SanDisk regarding properly registering these wee beasties; I registered the first two black ones with the identical external number. Perhaps I’ll try another e-mail.
