Getting Drive info and Manufacturer, P/N, etc in OS X

Getting Drive info and Manufacturer, P/N, etc in OS X

Getting Drive info and Manufacturer, P/N, etc in OS X

(OP)
I've got a Lacie external hard drive and I'm trying to figure out what the manufacturer, part number (P/N), and firmware of the hard drive inside the Lacie.    Is there a utility or terminal command I can used to give me the manufacturer, Part number (P/N), firmware, etc. of the lacie drive?   

I've tried the Disk Utility and it will tell me the manufacturer of disks inside the computer but not in the lacie enclosure.  

Thanks in Advance.  

RE: Getting Drive info and Manufacturer, P/N, etc in OS X

Open system profiler (applications > utilities) in there you can expand USB and see the details of the drive attached (or firewire if it's connected to that)

When I was born I was so suprised I didn't talk for 18 months

You can open system profiler buy going to Apple menu/About this mac.  Then click the More Info button.
