Default external android device id?

i am curious as to where to locate the android device id #. i guess it's a 16 digit sequence that syncs with the market/playstore. i am trying to use the apk downloader extension with google chrome, as it requires that info. currently i am awaiting a new battery to finish flashing my droid x, as it became too low to program. is there an android id # that is 16 digits (letters and numbers) on the external of the droid x?

Your gmail address is what is used to sync with the market.

i know it uses your gmail address, but the page also requires the "Android Device ID"

chrome-extension://lnbkiaddgodnooflghhbdpbdheanmpjp/options.html

any ideas?

The MEID is unique to the device. On the Droid X you can find it on a label under the battery (it is the last line).

If you can power on the Droid X you can enter *#06# on the dial pad and read the MEID on the screen.

The only time I have ever seen this used is by Motorola/Verizon to track a problem. This makes it specific to a device.
