ITouch pass code forgotten?

If you cannot remember the pass-code or password to your new iTouch MP3 player first thing you can do to unlock the IPod is by doing the following: Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked. If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can do a Hard re-set. Hold down the screen lock button and the home button at the same time for 30 seconds. You will lose all your stuff (music, videos). You will then need to restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Then you can reset your pass-code and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: A. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process will erase all your music, videos etc and cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. B. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. C. Open iTunes and synchronize.

forgot my password


If you cannot remember the pass word, you will need to restore your device on the computer that you used originally sync your itouch to. So then you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you use or restore on a different computer from the orginal, you will be able to unlock the device for use, you can remove the pass word but your data will not be saved. Hope this helps.
