Ipod touch password and computer not working

I have an ipod touch and i have a password on it. i totally forgot the password i have tried so many but it just won´t work. i know that if you connect the ipod to your computer that it should just be normal again. but my problem is that the computer i was using my ipod with is not working anymore. if i connect the ipod touch to another computer it always says that i need to put the password in the ipod in order for the computer to be able to read the ipod touch. what can i do to unlock the password?

    on the Apple site:

    If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present.

I forgot my 4 code password and i tried restoring my ipod but its still asking for my password and i dont remember


Connect your iPod Touch to iTunePress and Hold the power and home keys for 10 seconds.Screen goes black, now release the power button. Make sure you do not release the Home key until your iTunes says "We have detected an itouch in recovery mode. Now just follow the directions. This will erase/factory restore the iPod.Restore all your songs/apps in your iTunes account. Just remember this will totally wipe the iPod but make it functional again!!

Hello,

There are two options by which you can unblock the code on your ipod. Follow any of the procedures below to unlock your ipod.

Unlock with primary computer
  1. 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.
  2. Open itunes and sync the iPod as normal.
  3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.
Unlock by restoring
  1. 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.
  2. Plug your iPod into the new computer you want to be the primary computer. Open iTunes and click on the "Restore" button.
  3. Reload your data, if it is available and sync your iPod. Remove it following normal procedures.
Take care.

I LOCKED MY IPOD TOUCH BUT I FORGOT MY PASSWORD. COULD YOU HELP ME UNLOCK IT?


If your iPod touch is password locked, the only way to get past it is to force the unit into restore mode by doing the following: 1. Plug the iPod touch in to your computer. 2. Hold the sleep/wake button and the menu button 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. Release the buttons. 3. 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.

Ipod touch is locked forgot password cant unlock


plug it into your computer and through itunes on your original computer you will be able to reset it. If it is not the original computer that you are using you will be able to reset it but will probably lose the information on it.

Forgot passcode


If you forgot your iPod Touch password the only solution is to wipe and restore your last backup.

Apple Knowledge Base Regarding lost passwords

Instructions from Apple Support Document (Page 110)
Restore iPod touch from a backup:
  1. Connect iPod touch to the computer you normally sync with.
  2. In iTunes, select iPod touch in the sidebar and click the Summary tab.
  3. Click Restore to reinstall the iPod touch software, restore its default settings, and delete data stored on iPod touch. In iTunes, you can also restore from a backup without deleting data stored on iPod touch.

I forgot my ipod touch 4 digit password and now its disabled


here you go, in detailed steps:

  1. Plug in your iPod.
  2. Wait for it to load completely.
  3. Open My Computer (or computer if on Vista). Make sure you can view hidden files.
  4. Go to iPod_control.
  5. Go to the folder named Device.
  6. If your iPod is locked, there will be a file _locked . Rename the file to _unlocked.
  7. Safely remove your iPod and it will be cleared.
Hope this helped! ^_^ Have a great day~

Il forgot my password and cant get on my ipod


Hi,

unfortunately you will have to restore your ipod touch. Just connect it to your computer, and within itunes select the restore option on the ipod page.

The ipod should be able to be restored by the computer that last synced it.

Otherwise, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

I hope this helps,

Nathan.
