Display last-connected-iPod's serial number in iTunes
Authored by: satcomer on Jan 27, '06 12:46:39AM

You also can see the serial number of the current connected iPod with iTunes 6.0.2. When looking into iTunes' iPod preferences, click on the version number right above the "Calendar" tab (5th Gen iPod). This will show you the iPod serial number.

You could also use this script to dump the info in a file. I have two iPods so this will get the SNumber and dates of both
set biglist to {}
set theSN to do shell script " defaults read com.apple.iPod | grep -i " & quote & "Serial Number" & 
	quote & "| awk -F= '{print $2}'" as string
set theCnd to do shell script " defaults read com.apple.iPod | grep -i " & quote & " Connected " & quote 
	& "| awk -F\\; '{print $1}' | awk -FConnected\\ \\= '{print $2}'" as string
set the_count to 0
set theconter to count paragraph of theSN
repeat theconter times
	set the_count to the_count + 1
	copy paragraph the_count of theSN & paragraph the_count of theCnd to the end of biglist
	do shell script "echo iPod Serial\\ Number\\: " & quoted form of item the_count of biglist & " >> ~/documents/iPod_Serial_Numbers.txt"
	do shell script "echo ---------------  >> ~/documents/iPod_Serial_Numbers.txt"
end repeat

Or you could just accomplish the same thing with a single awk command and no applescript:

defaults read com.apple.iPod | awk -F= '/Connected/ { DATE=$2 }; /Serial Number/ { print $2, DATE }'
