Hard Drive Serial Number Examples

The reason for this article is because a lot of us don't physically see our hard drives they are often remote in a datacenter etc and the actual serial number we see in SMART is not enough to check for some manufacturers.

A good example is our first one the Toshiba

=== START OF INFORMATION SECTION ===
Device Model:     TOSHIBA DT01ACA200
Serial Number:    33FMDW4AS

If you enter the serial in Toshiba's site above: https://myapps.taec.toshiba.com/myapps/admin/jsp/webrma/addRequest1NoLogin.jsp

You will get the following result:

  33FMDW4AS     Warranty could not be determined for this Non-HDD serial number. If you have any questions you may contact Toshiba at 1-855-898-1905.

That is  because you are missing the "TZ5" at the end.  See when you add the TZ5.

33FMDW4ASTZ5 HDKPC09A0A01S Out Of Warranty Out of warranty. Exp Date: 2015/03/26
