Default HD Serial Numbers

Is there a reaonable way to change your HD Serial Number or is it permanent? Would re-formatting accomplish this? Are there any utilties that do it?

....WHAT?

I think yer confused.

Your HDD serial number is the specific identifier of that physical manufactured piece. Why would you want to change the number? Leave the label alone.

I'm not talking about the manufacturer's serial number, I'm talking about the Disk ID Serial Number, it's a hexa-decimal number that is generated when the drive is formatted and partitioned.

I just need to know if this is permanent once it's been created.

Not sure if you can. Probably not. Why would you want to?
