There is a hold switch somewhere on your ipod. It is a black (or silver) oval switch. I have an ipod classic 80GB and my switch is on the top of my ipod. Since your ipod is different, it might be somewhere else. When you find it, push it to the left and orange should appear on the right side. Your ipod won't be locked anymore.

I hope you didn't mean that you forgot your combination on the screen lock. If you did, sorry I don't know what to do.

I hope this solution was helpful. Please rate it.

I'm sorry if I sent this multiple times. I didn't know if you got it.

Have you tried holding Menu and the center buttons at the same time? That will reset the device and probably unlock it. Don't worry, it won't erase your data.

To change the language, you might have to find the options and language changer and change it from there.

As for your computer not recognizing iTunes or anything else, try doing a Windows Update.

Same goes for charging and screen problems, try resetting or doing Windows Update and see if that will help you.

Glad I could help you out:)

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.
