Retrieving HD serial number using fso & DOS

P: 1
Hi,

I am using FSO (VB6.0 proff) to retrieve the serial number of my hardisk. Comparing the number with what WIN XP returns and also what I retrieve using the dir command in DOS is really diverging.

VB6.0 using FSO returns: HDserial# = 1894436341
WIN XP shows: WDC WD800JD-08LSA0
DOS (using the top header info of the DIR listing) returns: 70EA-CDF5

Now, what is right and what is wrong ?
Help greatly appreciated
