If it is an Apple 160GB. You can plug it into your iTunes account. On the left hand side it should come up under devices. Click on it and it will show your device on the screen with a tab saying "Restore" Click this and it will take you through the restore process make sure you know your computer password, it will ask for it. It will take you through resetting up your iTunes library back onto the iPod.

How do i reset the pin coad wen i have forgot it ?


You cannot reset/change the iPod's password once it has been set without having to restore it to its factory settings, but if you only want to unlock it connect it to an authorized computer and it should automatically unlocks it. If for some reason you cannot seem to unlock it like this then try manually changing the locked file into an unlocked one. First you need to make sure you have your computer/mac set to view hidden files, if not, follow this for windows: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Show-hidden-files and this for mac: http://guides.macrumors.com/Viewing_hidden_files_on_a_Mac
once that is done, go to My Computer or Finder, open your iPod by selecting your iPod's Name "iPod", then go to the now visible folder called "iPod control", now open the folder called "Device", once here you should see a file called "_locked" right click on it(Control+ Click on mac) and select "rename" now add a U and an N right after the underscore so now it should read "_unlocked" and done! Your iPod will now be unlocked no matter what.

My ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod


Hi,

This means there's some kind of problem with the iPod.
It might be solved by resetting or restoring your iPod. Otherwise, you'll probably need to take the iPod into an Apple store to see what's wrong.

Here's how to reset your iPod:
  1. Turn on the iPod, and make sure it's unlocked (no red is showing by the switch at the top)
  2. Press the "menu" button (at the top of the circle) and the "select" button (middle of the circle) at the same time and hold them down for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo on the screen
Here's how to restore your iPod:
NOTE: this will delete all music, etc. from your iPod
  1. Plug your iPod into the computer
  2. Open iTunes
  3. Click on "Restore" (on the "Summary" tab).
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions.

    You'll need to resync all your music etc. to get it back on the iPod after it's been restored.
If your iPod does not show up in iTunes, use these directions to put it into disk mode: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363
Then try the restore directions again.

Hope this helps!

Hi! YOu need to disconnect your ipod from the pc.
Put the ipod into diskmode by following these instructions-
Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.

Ipod wont show up in my computer or itunes...


Have you tried resetting either ipod? In order to reset it, you just need to hold down both the menu button and the center button at the same time until the ipod turns off. then the apple will pop up on the screen and it will start up like normal. If this doesn't fix the problem for either ipod, then most likely the problem is with itunes or your computer. I would say that if it doesn't even show up on your computer anywhere, you're probably missing a driver or something.
