    Did you try reseting the ipod and the computer? A restore can remove the code.

Password forgotten now say's disabled


Unlock a Disabled iPod
If you own an iPod Classic or iPod Nano, you can set a four-digit security code on your device and then lock it to keep other people from accessing it.
Disabling your iPod is a good way to protect the data on your device, but if you lose or forget the four-digit code, you will need to manually unlock it in order to access your music and other content.
Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC.

Open the iTunes application by using the dock icon on a Mac or the start menu on a PC.

Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window.

Click on the "Sync" button to create a connection between the computer and the iPod.
Click on the eject symbol after the syncing process is complete, and then unplug your iPod from the computer.
The lock code has been reset; when you go to disable the iPod again, you will be prompted to choose a new four-digit code.

Or
Hard Reset a Disabled iPod Touch
A hard reset restores your iPod Touch to its original factory settings.
This is useful when your iPod Touch is disabled and won't turn on or off, but all your data is erased.
Luckily, you can restore your data with iTunes after you've performed the reset.
Once you've performed the reset, your iPod is wiped clean and iTunes prompts you to restore the settings from your last sync.

Plug the iPod into your computer and wait at least 10 minutes.
This allows the battery to recharge in case it has drained.
This could fix your disabled iPod, if the problem was caused by a dead battery.
Click "OK" if your computer opens a "Connect to iTunes" alert box.
Depending on your version of iTunes, the message may indicate the iPod is in "recovery mode" and you need to restore the device.
ITunes opens and resets your iPod for you.
Unplug the iPod from your computer if you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" alert box.
Make sure the iPod is charged before you attempt the hard reset.
Press and hold both the On/Off/Wake button and the Home button on your iPod.
Keep the buttons pressed.
Wait for the Apple logo to appear, it may take 10 seconds or longer.
When you see it, release the On/Off/Wake button but keep the Home button pressed.
Release the Home button when you see a picture of a USB cable with an arrow pointing to the iTunes logo.
Plug your iPod back into the computer.
The iTunes "recovery mode" message will appear.
Click "OK" to complete the reset.

Unlock an iPod Model A1199
Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.
Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

My ipod was locked due to incorrect password. i forgot the password now, please help


The iPod lock is a four-digit code that prevents unauthorized users from changing settings and configurations on your device. When your iPod is locked, it does not display contents onscreen and is unusable until your enter the code. If you have forgotten your code, you can unlock your iPod in one of two ways--by connecting it to the computer you used to set it up or restoring the iPod's default factory settings.

Connect your iPod to the computer using the supplied USB cable. Launch iTunes, which will display your iPod on the left panel. Right-click your iPod in the iTunes program and click "Eject." Close iTunes and detach your player from the computer to unlock it. Restoring your iPod Connect your player to the computer and launch iTunes. Click your iPod on the left panel and click the "Summary" tab. Click "Restore." Click "Backup" to save your current settings and select the restore option you want to use. Select Option 3 or 4 if you want to install the newest iPod software. Follow the prompts to finish the restoration and rename your iPod to restore the default factory settings.

I have a 2gb ipod nanao that i own but a coupledays ago i locked it by accident and it was given to me by a friend that forgot the password to so i need an unlock for the ipod


I think you are talking about the 4 digit combination lock.

To unlock your ipod connect your it to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application and let it recognise that your iPod is plugged in, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked. Now reset the pass-code.

If this doesn't work you will have to restore your iPod to factory settings using iTunes, this will wipe all the music form the ipod but u will be able to put this back on later.

To do this open itunes and plug in your iPod then select your ipod and click restore. This process will take a few minutes and the iPod must remain connected at all times until it has finished. When done itunes will ask you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences.

It froze and wants a passcode. Where would I find this?


Your iPod Touch will only prompt you for a password if someone set one up on the iPod. If you don't know what it is, you'll need to restore it to factory settings by plugging it into your computer, running iTunes, and selecting "Restore".

I just got a new ipod touch, i plugged it into itunes version 9.0 but itune is asking me to enter a password. How do i do it?


Ipod Password Lock
The first way is you can connect the iPod to the computer it was originally configured on, and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
You then can go into the preferences and turn off the lock. If you don’t have access to the original computer or it just does not work, you can jump to the second method.
The second way is the fix for any iPod problem, it is the classic “restore your iPod to factory settings.” That this will erase all data on your iPod and take you back to day one, but you can just add your music and data back to iPod from iTunes.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Double Problems...


this problem happens when you try connecting a ipod to a new Itunes. If you know the lock code you can remove it temporarily until you have it connected and authorized for that computer then you can apply a lock code to it again. the lock code can be removed by going to the settings icon then general option and turning off the passcode lock. then plug into your computer and Itunes will start and go and authorize that computer then all should be good.

How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


There are basically three ways to unlock the Screen Lock on your iPod:
  1. The most obvious and will not work for most people (or else you wouldn’t be visiting this web site). Simply enter the 4 digit combination/pass code at Extras > Screen Lock.
  2. Connect your iPod to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.
  3. Use this final way only if the first two options do not work for you because it is a destructive process.
    Everything on your iPod will be erased.
    This should not be a problem if you have all of your songs, videos, and other media stored in iTunes and you can synchronize once again after getting the iPod unlocked. Besides, if you don’t unlock your iPod it’s useless right? Learn how to Restore your iPod using the instructions from Apple’s site.
If your iPod is simply frozen, follow my instructions for an iPod Lockup Reset.



or


I've tried the below method, and my music is still intact]
Step:
1. Plug in ipod.
2. Open “My Computer”
3. Look for the removable device (which is your ipod).
4. Open the folder, search for this hidden file : _locked.
rename or remove(delete) this file.
5. Eject your ipod.
Done.
