I have an ipod touch 8gb that is disabled. it belongs to my daughters friend and i am trying to enable it. she lost the password


You can reset it using iTunes. Open iTunes, plug the iPod in using USB, then turn of the iPod, once it's off hold down the home and lock buttons for 10 seconds, then release the lock button while continuing to hold the home button. After a few seconds iTunes should detect the iPod. Then you should be able to restore the iPod without the code.

Ipod Touch vs. V -Touch


I would go for the ipod touch. Although it cost about $150 more than the V-Touch it last longer. For example first two days of owning my V-Touch the screen stopped working and it wouldn't turn on.My son brought his to school and when he got home there was a huge dent in the back plastic. Also they are very iffy a lot of videos won't work on V-touches and music and images. Although for the ipod touch you will be using itunes a lot adding more expenses they are more durable and rugged and have way better screen quality and sound quality. But if you are going for a gift for a younger kid ages 7-9 the V-Touch is exactly what you're looking for, a fun media player that won't last for ever but will last until you buy a more advanced (higher priced) media player. So if you are looking for something that will last for a a year and a half go for the V-Touch if you are looking for a long time commitment go for the ipod Touch.

My sons has disabled his i pod touch. He forgot his pass word. What can i do ? It wil not connect to itunes.


With the unit powered off hold the HOME button and connect to your computer. Continue hold the HOME button until iTunes recognizes it as an iPod in recovery mode. At this point you can do a RESTORE. It will wipe out everything on the unit and all music etc will need to be restore but it will be unlocked.

You can try putting it into DFU mode and restoring the firmware
here's how you put the ipod into DFU mode - connect your ipod touch to your computer - turn off your ipod touch - press and hold the Home button and sleep/wake button at the same time - After about 10 seconds release the sleep/wake button but continue holding the Home button until the iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an ipod in recovery mode - now you will be able to restore it..

The only solution is to do as it says, and connect it to iTunes, which re-enables the iPod.

Ipod disabled connect to itunes


If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present.

How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


to fix this you will need to erase all the data on the ipod(s).

plug the ipod into the computer using the included usb cable. open itunes (if it doesn't open automatically) in the column on the left side of the window there is an icon showing your ipod's name. click on it then click on the button that says "restore ipod"

WARNING: this will erase all the content on the ipod (you can put it back on later)

it will ask you to confirm. hit ok and keep your ipod plugged in as it restores it to it original state. pick the language you prefer and then load your music back on the device

How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


There are basically three ways to unlock the Screen Lock on your iPod:
  1. The most obvious and will not work for most people (or else you wouldn’t be visiting this web site). Simply enter the 4 digit combination/pass code at Extras > Screen Lock.
  2. Connect your iPod to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.
  3. Use this final way only if the first two options do not work for you because it is a destructive process.
    Everything on your iPod will be erased.
    This should not be a problem if you have all of your songs, videos, and other media stored in iTunes and you can synchronize once again after getting the iPod unlocked. Besides, if you don’t unlock your iPod it’s useless right? Learn how to Restore your iPod using the instructions from Apple’s site.
If your iPod is simply frozen, follow my instructions for an iPod Lockup Reset.

I've tried the below method, and my music is still intact]
Step:
1. Plug in ipod.
2. Open “My Computer”
3. Look for the removable device (which is your ipod).
4. Open the folder, search for this hidden file : _locked.
rename or remove(delete) this file.
5. Eject your ipod.
Done.

So you have to give the touch back and have it connect with the original pc. Or then loose all the files with a update/restore.
