I gotta ask. Why in the heck would you want to or should I say need to do that?

To make them a "Generic" hard drive, for resale!

I work for a company that tests and re-certifies tape drives, DLT, and hard drives, SCSI, SATA and IDE also NEW Drives. We also deal in Sun Microsystems servers. We might even be able to help you and your company.

If the morel/serial number is on the magnetic media itself, eraser57 may do the trick. If it is in the the firmware you are probably out of luck.

Thank you, I'll try that. I think it's on the magnetic media.

Thank you, I'll try that. I think it's on the magnetic media. But "0" filling a hard drive never touches the area this info is stored in. As we "0" Fill all our hard drives as one of a number of tests we run on them to make sure they are good drives. Quantum is requiring us to remove this information from all the drives, to make them Generic. So it might just be in the firmware. We are able to erase serial and model numbers from all hard drives except the Quantum drives. I don't know what the difference is.
