  • Any way to recover registration number from hard drive?

    Posted by Bob Sabiston on October 19, 2018 at 10:54 pm

    I posted the other day about my super-old Media100 editing system. After wiping the hard drive I reinstalled all the Media100 software. But to run the application you have to register with your serial number, which is on the “registration card”. I unfortunately have every bit of documentation, the discs, manuals etc but cannot find the stupid card.

    I did make a backup of the hard drive before I wiped it — so theoretically I should be able to move the relevant files back to the hard drive to make it run? But if I am going to sell the system to someone, it would be nice to be able to give them the registration number. Does anyone know how it is stored on the hard drive? Long shot, I know.


    EDIT: I was able to get the serial number from a sticker on the media100 card inside the machine…

    Congrats on getting the code from a sticker on the card! Someone (maybe you yourself, many years ago?) had great foresight! =).

    If you ever get stuck again, MacVideoPromo, the current marketeers of the free Media 100 Suite 2.1.8 ( available for free via ), have the ability to generate serial numbers for older Media 100 software from the board number. You can simply email Rich via this form: and take it from there, =).
