You can call the iTunes help line, available through Apple.com/support It's a HUGE pain of a process but they have access to everything. If you are trying to transfer purchased content from a previous device to a new Apple ID though I don't believe Apple has cleared that process yet. You may need to just create a new Apple ID. That being said, depending on the type of iPod and what operating system it is on, restoring it should correct the issue of removing an old Apple ID.

Power it off. Open iTunes. Hold down the home button and keep holding the home button as you plug it in to the computer. Don't let go until Itunes pops up the alert about a device in restore mode. This will re-image the device. You will lose all content on it, but it will also remove any passcode or accounts.

If you are on iOS 7 or 8 though you will DEFINITELY need the Apple ID and password to remove the account, this was a new security feature apple pushed last year.

I have a new computer and want to synce with my ipod but dont have original software


Just install iTunes on your new computer. If you want to sync content from iPod to new computer via iTunes, you need to keep in mind that iTunes only lets you sync iTunes Store purchases.

Step 1. Once you're on the new computer, install iTunes on it. Once installed, open iTunes, navigate to iTunes preferences (iTunes> Preferences on a Mac, or Edit> Preferences on Windows). Click the Devices button and make sure "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically" is checked.

Now you are able to transfer all of your iTunes purchases (including free apps, paid apps, songs, books and movies) from your iPod to your new computer. To do this, right-click (CTRL-click on a Mac) your iPod within iTunes and choose Transfer Purchases. Or click "File > Devices > Transfer Purchases from my iPod". Then iTunes will start syncing the purchased items to the library.
new-computer-want-synce-ipod-but-dont-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-3-2.jpg After finishing the above steps, you have just successfully transferred all your purchased files from iPod to your new computer. So what about other non-purchased files? Like some nice music you ripped from CDs or some movies you got from DVDs. As is mentioned, you are only allowed to sync purchased items between iPod and computer with iTunes. When you restore your iPhone, the non-purchased items will be erased without any doubts. In order to sync all your data from iPod to new computer without any data loss during the transfer process, you can take advantage of the third-party iPod transfer software to solve the problem.

Upgraded to iTunes 10 (PC with Windows XP Service Pack 3) when I bought a new 16GB Nano. Have two other iPods (4GB) that I've used without problem for several years. Now when I try to load songs...


First solving the devices compatibility conditions. Computer devices make the resource maneuverability achievable. For example, the computers feature that allows adapting to media transfers has impressions of what is attainable. Where for example, iTunes as a program that makes media management attainable only functions on devices with compartibity to capture an experience. Assume that the computer has an iTunes program with features of capturing media also to manipulate on another device. Assume also that, the means to capture multimedia impressions least malfunted either as internetworked connections from where significant resources are attainable. Once each components are within function order should provide the requisite experience requested. For example, once the new iPod were connected to computer that has compatibilities to media management should capture an impression either allowing importing or export between devices requesting media experiences. However in this situation, the internet provided resources required to attain functionality that influences the entire process. For example, requesting media from the internet web locations required several arrangements to capture resources. In situations where subscriptions to attain resources were required makes the process stringent. Keep in mind that the iPod device has several features among functions only influence by the internet at minimal observation. Once the media requested importation into iPod device from the internet encounters a malfunction either as out subscribed duration especially with iTunes media sharing, still allows an expansive resourcefulness to the iPod media device. Complaint to the manufacturer about conditions attains support related with device malfunctions. However, requesting resourcefulness from the iPod device within least malfunction has an alternate arrangement. First, ascertain the means to capturing resources from the internet least involving an iPod device. For example, secure an internet structure of devise mentionable as computers that have the available comparyibilities to perform media requests over networks. Perform familiarization tours of the network structures to capture the experiences that also includes available methods to capture media that between devices. The computer networks structures provide the hardware software programs to manage multimedia. An introduction of the iPod device into the computer structures should provide satisfactory results.

You need to authorize and deauthorize the computers appropriately for using the different ipods on different machines.
Read this article from apple web site.

Deauthorizing a computer allows you to manage which computers can play music, videos, audiobooks, or other content purchased from the iTunes Store.
Authorization helps protect the copyrights on the content you buy. You can use your digital rights management (DRM)-protected music purchases1 from the iTunes Store on up to five different computers (these can be any mix of Macintosh or Windows-compatible computers). When you play an item you've purchased, your computer is "authorized" to play content purchased using your Apple Account.
Note: Songs you encode in AAC format from a source other than the iTunes Store, such as your own audio CDs, and songs from iTunes Plus downloads do not need to be authorized.
Products Affected iTunes Store
To authorize a computer to play purchases using your Apple Account
  1. Select a song, video, or audiobook you've purchased (in your library or the Purchased playlist).
  2. Click the Play button.
If the computer is already authorized, the item plays. If the computer has not yet been authorized, iTunes asks you to enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase the song.
Remember to deauthorize your computer before you sell it, give it away, or get your computer serviced.
To deauthorize a computer
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Choose Store > Deauthorize Computer (In earlier versions of iTunes, access this option from the Advanced menu).
  3. Select "Deauthorize Computer for Apple Account" and enter your Apple ID and password.
Make sure you deauthorize your computer before you upgrade your RAM, hard disk or other system components, or reinstall Windows. If you do not deauthorize your computer before you upgrade these components, one computer may use multiple authorizations.
To deauthorize all computers associated with your account If you find you have reached 5 authorizations, you can reset your authorization count by clicking Deauthorize All in the Account Information screen.
  1. Click iTunes Store in the menu on the left side of iTunes.
  2. If you're not signed in to the store, click the Account button, then enter your account name and password.
  3. Click the Account button again (your ID appears on the button), enter your password, and then click View Account.
  4. In the Account Information window, click Deauthorize All.
Note: You may only use this feature once per year. The Deauthorize All button will not appear if you have fewer than 5 authorized computers, or if you have used this option within the last 12 months. If you need assistance on using this feature, please contact the iTunes Store support via email (http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/ww/).

Additional Information
  • iTunes DRM-protected music includes audio with a bit rate of 128 kbps and allows users to transfer songs and videos to up to five computers, burn seven copies of the same playlist to CD, and sync to an unlimited number of iPods.
  • iTunes Plus music refers to songs and music videos available in our highest-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding (twice the current bit rate of 128 kbps), and without digital rights management (DRM). There are no burn limits and iTunes Plus music will play on all iPods, Mac or Windows computers, Apple TVs, and many other digital music players.
  • While you may need to enter your account information again after initializing or formatting your hard disk, initializing or formatting the hard disk itself does not remove the computer from the list of authorized computers. If you plan to initialize or format your hard disk prior to selling or donating your computer, deauthorize the computer first, then initialize or format the hard disk.
  • Under some circumstances you may be required to enter your registration information again, but this should not use up multiple authorizations. If you think that you may have used up multiple authorizations on just one computer, see One computer using multiple iTunes Store authorizations.
  • The iTunes Store is governed by its Terms of Service, which permits Apple to change the authorization policy.
  • You can authorize computers not located in the United States so you can play previously purchased music.
  • An Apple ID based on an expired .Mac (pronounced "dot Mac") or Mobile Me account name and password can still be used to purchase items and to authorize or deauthorize computers to play purchased music.
