Not sure of any other windows version but this is what I saw in Vista when I was trying to find more details of my connected Canon Powershot camera. You can find the serial number of your camera or scanner by just checking out the properties. In case you have lost the serial number of your camera and scanner , this will just save your day because without serial number of a camera you cant even make claims.
- Connect the camera or scanner to the windows
- Go to control panel > Scanners and Cameras ( Switch to class mode if you can find it )
- Double click and then select properties of the camera / scanners whose serial number you want to find out.
- Here you will see all the major properties like Model Name, Serial Number, Firmware Version and Manufacturer name.
