My young son has locked up my daughters ipod nano, and didn't know the code he just pushed numbers. How can I unlock or reset this? We did not get it new so I don't have any kind of software, just the USB docking cable. Any ideas would help.

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.
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.
To unlock you ipod you can connect your ipod to the computer it was last synced with and click on restore options. it will restore the factory settings and will clear all the saved data in your ipod. This is the only way you can unlock it.
