With me the Hardware Ids

The "Hardware IDs" entry gives:
So it shows the revision number. Going to the correct usb Mass Storage entry(this would be so much easier if I had my laptop, and not the desktop with umpteen drives plugged in!)>Properties (double clicking)>Details>Device Instance ID, gives USB\VID_2237&PID_4163\N905B21300675, i.e. the correct PID. However, since nothing says it is the Kobo, it might not be helpful for others to do this (unless some do and some don't have way of easily identifying it).
Does anyone have an easy way for Mac and Linux users to do this?
