    I would love to know if there is a way to pull the serial number of an IPOD through a shell such as TERMINAL or COMMAND PROMPT.

    We have many IPODs which we wish to record the serial numbers of, but iTunes takes far too long to detect the unit... and entering them manually from reading the number off the back of the unit is too time consuming.

    I would like to know if there is any command prompt argument that I can in turn write into a script that will simply record the serial number of any IPOD unit connected to the computer.

    I appreciate any help / feedback!!
