    What problem are you trying to solve? What is do you want this information for? – Please Read My Profile Sep 1 '18 at 17:39

No, this is not part of the standard for EXIF, which means there's no standard way to store it in image files.

  • "Second, there's no standard for communicating this from the card to the camera." I think there is - the CID register contains the serial number so there's no reason the camera couldn't read that. – Philip Kendall Sep 1 '18 at 18:26

    @PhilipKendall Is it possible that cheap knock-offs of brand name flash memory cards would all have the same serial number? Many reverse engineered third party lenses use this strategy to get cameras to recognize/work with them. – Michael C Sep 1 '18 at 19:33
  • @MichaelClark Anything is possible - but my impression is that the knock-off merchants are wise to this specific trick. No proof though and getting off topic for photo SE. – Philip Kendall Sep 2 '18 at 6:52

No, It's not possible. Because in the current design image doesn't includes the memory card information like seriel numbers. Because it'll not effect to image quality.
