Unlock an iPod Model A1199
Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.
Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

Unlock an iPod Nano Code
With the latest iPod Nano model, you can set a four-digit code and lock all intruders from accessing your iPod.
In order to use the device's functions again, you need to enter the correct code.
However, if you happen to lose or forget the code, you will need to find another way to unlock your iPod Nano.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Nano.
Plug the other end of the USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer.
Open the iTunes program by using the Dock on a Mac or the Start menu on a PC.
Select your iPod Nano from the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window.
Click on the "Sync" button to make a connection between your computer and your iPod Nano.
Click on the "Eject" symbol once the syncing process is complete.
Remove your iPod Nano from the USB cable.
The iPod's lock code will now be reset and you will be able to access all features again.
Navigate to the "Screen Lock" option in the iPod menu to lock your iPod's screen again.
Since your iPod's lock code was just reset, you will be prompted to select a new four-digit code.

I forgot my lock combo on my ipod nano


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.
Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. 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."

    Ipod screen


    The manual has instructions for how to unlock this - unfortunately, if you can't remember your combo, then it will involve erasing all your songs. If you lost your manual, it is available from the Apple website.

    Unlocking my ipod nano


    There is only one way - and it will erase all your songs:

    If you lock your iPod nano screen and can’t unlock it
    Normally, if you can connect your iPod nano to the computer it is authorized to work
    with, your iPod nano automatically unlocks. If the computer authorized to work with
    your iPod nano is unavailable, you can connect iPod nano to another computer and
    use iPod Updater to restore your iPod software. See the next section for more
    information.
    If you want to change the screen lock combination and you can’t remember the
    current combination, you must restore the iPod software, and then set a new
    combination.
    Updating and Restoring iPod Software
    You can use iPod Updater to update or restore your iPod software. Apple periodically
    updates iPod software to improve performance or add features. It is recommended that
    you update your iPod nano to use the latest software. You can also restore the software,
    which puts iPod nano back in its original state.
    â If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
    affected.
    â If you choose to restore, all data is erased from your iPod nano, including songs, files,
    contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod nano settings are
    restored to their original state.
    To update or restore iPod nano with the latest software:
    1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
    has the latest software for all models of iPod.
    2 Double-click the software installation file and follow the onscreen instructions to install
    the iPod update.
    3 Connect iPod nano to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
    opens.
    If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
    automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
    4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software.
    If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t recognize that iPod nano is
    connected to your computer, reset iPod nano (see page 45).
    If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you
    can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you
    installed the software from the iPod CD.
