Display last-connected-iPod's serial number in iTunes
Authored by: clindberg on Jan 26, '06 09:45:13AM

Under Panther at least, there is a file

/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iPod.plist

that should have the serial numbers of iPods that you have used, along with a bit of other information. I'm not sure if it is still used with Tiger though.

The preference file is still there in the same location in my fresh install of Tiger.

Interesting that this file exists and shows my iPod information, but clicking on "No iPod Connected" does not reveal my iPod info. Perhaps the original tip is actually a 10.4 only hint.

to quickly display this information in the console, you can use the following command:

defaults read com.apple.iPod
The plist includes information not only about the last iPod connected but all the iPods and their most recent connection dates.

Interesting. Also displays, "Use Count", which would seem to imply the number of times you've plugged the iPod in.
