Hi Viper_nx,

To reset the password is very simple provided you have the pc with the iTunes you normally connect the ipod to. Here goes:

  • Plug the ipod into the PC using the USB cable as normal
  • Once the ipod main page comes up on iTunes click the button labelled 'Restore'
  • Choose which ever is the bottom option (if it gives you any)
  • It will restart itself 1 or 2 times. Don't touch it at all during all of this but follow any onscreen instructions. It may want to resync and re-put all you media back onto the ipod.
When it's done, eject it and all settings on the iPod will be set to the defaults. This means the password will be reset to 'off'.

All the best

How do I reset my I pods passcode?


If your iPod is disabled from a passcode that is entered too many times or you don't remember the passcode you'll want to follow:
http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT1212

It will instruct your to put your iPod into recovery mode to do a restore to factory setting (this will erase the iPod).

If you have a backup available, that doesn't have the passcode in it then use:
http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203977

Be warned that if the passcode is on the backup and you do not know the code, then you will be back to square one and have to restore it to factory settings again. Good luck!

My daughter put a passcode on it and got it wrong to many times and now it is disabled and wont connect to ITunes


Yes, iTunes will not recognize your iPod touch because it's locked with a passcode. Unless you can remember the passcode, the only thing you can do is to put your iPod touch to DFU mode and restore.
Click here for step by step instruction.
Doing so will wipe out all data from your iPod touch.

When you connect to the computer, click on "restore". It will then put your ipod back to the beginning settings, and you can set a new passcode.
