Terrible news Alan.  I hope you get this sorted out soon.

Do these digital cameras actually embed the serial numbers in the files somewhere so you can trace them if uploaded to the web.  If not they should.

can you tell me how to fine the embedded serial number?

It's buried in the exif.

If you have Lightroom then in the Library module, scroll down to the metadata section and choose "Exif".  If you have Photoshop open the file, hit file info and look in the "raw data" tab.  It's in XML but it's easy to read.

If you have neither then get a decent Exif reader.

For windows, you'd be hard pressed to improve on opanda's iexif for IE - they do a freeware version, which would be fine for your purposes.

if you've got Photoshop - then you've got Bridge, and that shows the information you want.

        I'm not really qualified to answer this but I believe it depends on how the pic is prepared for the web.
        I understand that most auto resizing systems (Or whatever they'er called :-[) strip out most of the data. Iv'e just downloaded a pic out of my own gallery, opened it in Bridge and can see my camera serial number, but then I resize my pics manually.
        I downloaded one of yours, opened it and there is very little info available.
        I would be very interested to know if my assumption is correct.

PS  Iv'e deleted your pic of my hard drive.

Just as a matter of interest did the insurance ever say OK.
