    Hallo, this is my first post on this forum!
    I need to know if there exists any code on burned CD which make possible to know what is the CD device (not the brand but the single unit) that burned it.
    Thanks

    No. But a forensics expert in optics may be able to discern very slight patterns in the mark registry that are the equivalent of an old-fashioned typewriter printing.

    Thank you for replying!
    So you mean that it is, technically speaking, possible to retrieve the single drive serial number or something similar?

    No. It is possible to find a specific pattern that may match another pattern written by the same drive. You would then have to physically find that drive and look at it to find the serial number. Same forensics as finding a registration number for a gun by examining the score marks on a bullet.
