This number references the specific device this recorder is. Using it you could identify the manufacturer and the capabilities of the drive. GEAR holds an internal list of recorders that our supported by our software. We use this number in order to reference the drive in this listing.

Here is a link to GEAR's: Supported Recorder Database.

Sometimes, manufacturers of drives, also have an internal house model number, which is referenced specifically within their business alone.

So how do I find out my drives Model Number?

To find your model number :

  • Within GEAR

    • Open "My Computer"
    • Right click the drive you want to know about.
    • Select Properties

    • Generally drives list their Model Numbers on a label directly on the top face of the drive. Sometimes this number is referenced after "m/n:", but most always it says "Model:”
