as per ur suggestion i tried with awk script....

print "Node,device_name,instanceID,ParentIdPrefix,Last Mounted As,Driver,Disk Stamp,volume_stamp"
cmd | getline hostname
printf "%s",hostname
NR>3{ s=s","$2 }
END{ print s }

but the output i got is as follows

Node,device_name,instanceID,ParentIdPrefix,Last Mounted As,Driver,Disk Stamp,volume_stamp
conf6xp,,, 0018F3D974B4A9C0E1760896&0, 7&b62e00e&2, \DosDevices\I,{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0033, 09/07/2010 15, 09/07/2010 15,,,, 001D0F1E35B25B8C1201011B&0, 7&1f5848f3&0,{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0035, 09/06/2010 15, 09/06/2010 15,,,, 044303E5&0,,{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0032, 09/10/2010 10, 03/12/2010 10

it means that .... i added a new column device_name in between node and instance_id and tried to bring kingston data traveller or maxtor under it.....but could not achieve that

the second paragraph of another kingston device details had inligned with with first... as additional columns without headding.........

how to bring the second paragraph just under first one in the following manner

the desired output is
Node device_name instanceid parent_id last_mount as xxx xxxxx xxxxxxxx xxx
abc kingston 33333 2222 xxxx xx xxx xxxxxxxx
abc jetflash 44444 4444 3333 3333 222 2222

please provide some suggestions to achieve this..............
