It would probably be on a sticker on the box it came in (if purchased separately). Otherwise, you'll need to open your case and look at the top of the drive.

Hi dragonpea, I'm not understanding why anyone would need a serial number either.....

Who are you talking to?

What happens when you put a cd in the drive? Do you get an error message? Does it attempt to read the cd? Can you boot with a windows 98 bootable floppy disk, choose cdrom support, and get a directory on the cd in the drive?

If you call tech support and have a hardware problem, they're going to ask for the serial number. That's a standard question. To find it, you'll probably have to take the drive out and locate it. It's probably not visible while mounted in the case.
