I need a program that works with windows xp x64 that will scan all disks installed on the computer and report their Manufacture, Model Number, Serial Number, and volume label.... I have 5 servers with 17 drives installed each and desperatly need to collect this information. If theres anyone who could recommend a program that does this, i'm having quite some trouble finding one.

Do you need this all printed out on 1 report?

I have used AIDA32 before on 32bit XP.  It gives all the information you requested, but its not all extracted in 1 report per se.

Plus, I dont even know if this would work with x64, but it is a free utility...

hmmm I tried that, it does work in a 64bit envornment. However it doesn't pull the serial numbers of the drives, which is the most important bit of information i need. Any other suggestions? BTW i've tried many S.M.A.R.T reading programs to retreive the serial number, and they  report the serial numbers incorrectly. I should mention these drives are on RAID controllers with no RAID setup.

I will keep thinking...

I was able to pull serial numbers, but again, my drives are not attached to a RAID controller, just directly to the mobo.

Havent tested it, but it includes the source, so you could even modify it to suit your needs.

Thanks for the tip... i brought the source of that to a couple of the programmers in the office and they're adding to it to report the volume label... we use only on partition on our drives so that'll provide the accurate results i need.
