If you own an iPod touch, you have the option to set a password, which Apple calls a passcode, to protect your data.
Anyone who attempts to access your iPod, after unlocking it or turning it on, will require the passcode to do so.
However, if you forget your passcode or incorrectly enter it, you will eventually see an alert that your iPod touch has become disabled.
To unlock your iPod touch after forgetting the passcode, and still access your content, you must connect it to the computer with which you last synced it.

Connect your iPod touch to the computer with which you last synced the music player.
Launch iTunes if it does not automatically open.
Select your iPod touch under the devices list, and click the "Summary" tab in iTunes.
Click "Restore" and, when prompted, click the "Back Up" button to save a back up of your iPod touch in iTunes.

Click "Restore" when prompted, after the back up saves. After restoring, click "Ok."
Choose the most recent back up from the drop down list on the "Set Up Your iPod" screen.

Click the "Continue" button to restore your iPod touch.

Ipod touch model a1288 is disable forgot passcode and wont let me connect to itunes messages says enter passcode to connect


The most logical option would be...
- Connect your device to iTunes (The same computer it is set to sync with)
- Hold the power and home buttons
- After the device shuts down, release the power button
- Your device should then be in recovery mode, at which point you may release the home button upon seeing a message on iTunes that basically says it has detected an iPod in recovery mode.

Ipod touch is disabled and wont let me put in my pass code to unlock it when i get to itunes!


If your iPod touch is locked by a 4-digit passcode, the only way to get past it is to force the unit into restore mode by doing the following:


1. Start iTunes and Plug the iPod touch in to your computer via the sync cable. This could be firewire and/or USB.


2. Hold the sleep/wake button(the button at the top) and the menu button(round button at the bottom) down at the same time. Keep them both pressed until you see the 'restore' screen (an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol) on the iPod touch. If the ipod turns off or shows the "Slide to power down", just wait and try again. It takes about 10 seconds. Once the restore screen shows, Release the buttons.


3. Windows should quickly "install driver software" for a few seconds. iTunes should now display the iPod touch, along with a message that the iPod touch is in recovery mode. Click the RESTORE button in iTunes to restore the iPod touch.


Please note that doing this will erase the contents of the iPod touch -- that's how the system is designed to work: a passcode lock is meant to protect the data on the iPod.

My daughter put a passcode on it and got it wrong to many times and now it is disabled and wont connect to ITunes


Yes, iTunes will not recognize your iPod touch because it's locked with a passcode. Unless you can remember the passcode, the only thing you can do is to put your iPod touch to DFU mode and restore.
Click here for step by step instruction.
Doing so will wipe out all data from your iPod touch.

Ipod touch passcode


Do you see in an icon for your ipod touch on the left hand panel of iTunes? It should be listed under "devices". you need to click that first.
Then go to the Summary tab. There is a "restore" button under the Version section. This will restore your iPod to factory defaults. You will loose all the custom data, and will have to re-sync it.
