After completing the following, your iPod will become a password recovery disk, which will allow recovering your system password in case you get locked out. Note: This tutorial is only works for WinXP. Required Items:

  • Windows XP Home/Pro
  • iPod Nano or iPod Video
  • USB-iPod Connection Cable
Set Up Procedure:
1) Connect your iPod to your machine and verify that it appears as a standard drive in "My Computer". (ex: "Joe's iPod (G:)")
Note: If it doesn't appear and you have iTunes Installed, make sure "disk use" is enabled.
2) Go To Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Select Your Account -> Related Tasks - > "Prevent a forgotten password". A Wizard should appear.
3) Select Your iPod's Drive Name -> Enter Current Password -> Finish Once complete your iPod should be setup as a password recovery disk. Do not delete the "userkey" file, which you may see when browsing your iPod's contents. To test your recovery disk do a quick Log Off and try logging in with an incorrect password. Select "use password reset disk". Then proceed and select your iPod's drive name. If all goes well it should you will be allowed to create a new password

My ipod nano chromatic ha water damage from the washer


Sometimes if you leave it sit for several days or so it will dry out completely and start to work again. I don't recommend charging it or plugging it in for several days or so as if there is still water in it, it may fry some of the chips. It may be beyond repair though.

ZMate MP3 player. cant make it work no matter what i do


Make sure the "lock/unlock" on side is unlocked.Use 2Gig SD card.After disconnecting from computer, turn on by holding the on/off button for a couple seconds. Then press the same button once more to start it playing.
There are several other buttons on the player. Here is what they are.
LOCK- The lock switch will make it so none of the other buttons work. This is good for when the player is in your pocket and you don't want to accidently press buttons.

Key locked system shut down


On the top of the player there is a slider. When it is showing orange next to it your player is "Locked" so accidental button pushing wont mess up your tunes. Slide it over so it shows only white instead of orange and your player should be just fine.
