How can I get the serial number (via code) of a PDA device

I've found a link on http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickstart/CompactFramework/ 
the returns the device ID (serial number), but this is of the form
8E0000E5-8B82-A17B-0038-0050BF1977E0.

The serial number of my PDA is 2CK504106L, but when I run code from the above link I got a serial number in the the above format and not my PDA's serial number.

Any ideas anyone

Thanks

The only working solution I knew works only with a iPAQ.
On a iPAQ there is a program called \Windows\CreateAssetFile.exe. If you execute this program it generates a file named cpqAssetData.dat and in this file you can find the serial number for your iPAQ.

Best regards,

I've check this on my iPAQ but I don't seem to have this file.

Which iPAQ do you have

Have you looked for both files I you open the iPAQ info the file cpqAssetData.dat should also be created.
