My ipod is disabled and says connect to itunes but it also says itunes could not... so what do i do?


Step 1:
Apple's iPod Touch comes with a screen lock feature that allows you to set a four-digit security code to prevent others from using your iPod. Every time the iPod locks, you must enter this code to unlock the screen and access the user interface. Entering the wrong code too many times, or simply forgetting your security code, can cause you to be completely locked out. When this happens, you can quickly unlock your iPod Touch.

Connect your iPod Touch to the computer you usually sync it with. When you disconnect your iPod, it should now be unlocked. If Step 1 does not work, you have to restore your iPod Touch. Be advised that restoring your iPod Touch returns it to the original factory settings. This means that all your songs and files will be deleted and lost. You can resync your files to your iPod from iTunes once you have finished restoration. Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes before proceeding. In the left navigation panel in iTunes, select your iPod under the "Devices" section. Click the "Summary" tab and select "Restore." When iTunes prompts you about backing up your data, click "Back Up." In the following window, click "Restore." After the restore process completes, you will see the Apple logo on the screen of your iPod. Leave your iPod connected to your computer until it shows up again on the iTunes navigation panel. Your iPod touch is now unlocked. In iTunes you will be able to setup your iPod. Select the backup you made in the drop-down menu to restore your data files. Click "Continue" to finish the restoration. iTunes: Restoring iOS software

How can I unlock a disabled ipod touch?


Step 1:
The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer. It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen. If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled. To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer. Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window. Click the "Restore" button. If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup. If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings. Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device. iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

Passcode for ipod touch


Hi astrosrn
If you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the Ipod 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 restore your ipod to factory settings using ipod Updater.
Please note that this will erase all data on your ipod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your ipod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your Ipod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted.
Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your ipod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your ipod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the Ipod, which will erase all music and data.

My Ipod Touch 32GB appears to be locked, how would I go about unlocking it?


Normally there's a button on top of the Ipod Touch that you would need to press first for the screen to show you the message "Slide to unlock". After getting that, you can just touch the button on the screen sideways (like sliding your fingers to it) to unlock it.

However if the problem persist, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
1. Connect your IPod to your computer (the first one IPod sync with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

If you still can't unlock IPod by connecting it to the
computer that you use to manage the songs, you can restore your iPod to it's factory settings using Itunes.

Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.

Although, after restoring the Ipod and you are still having problems with unlocking it, the problem could be with the screen of your Ipod. In which case, you would need to go to any Apple store near you or you can try contacting Apple. Phone numbers for each country varies, you can click here to check the Phone number for your country.


Hope this information helps!

Can not unlock ipod


Hi,

How to Unlock an iPod


Your later generation Apple iPod can be locked to protect your personal data from anyone else's eyes. There are a variety of ways to unlock it depending on your access to the combination, the primary computer linked with the iPod, or neither.
Difficulty: Easy
Instructions

Unlock with the Combination

Remember the 4-digit combination you used to set the screen lock.

Enter the exact combination. If the combination is correct, the iPod unlocks and displays the screen you were on before you locked it.

The numbers on the screen flash red if you enter the code incorrectly.
Unlock with the Primary Computer



Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.

Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal.


Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.
Unlock by Restoring


Restore the iPod to factory settings if you do not have access to your primary computer. This erases all of the data you have stored on the iPod.

Plug your iPod into the new computer you want to be the primary computer. Open iTunes and click on the "Restore" button.

Reload your data, if it is available and sync your iPod. Remove it following normal procedures.

Have a nice day..
