So, you forgot your password huh? Well, the best way to unlock the iPod when the screen lock code was forgotten is to connect it to your computer and view it in My Computer. Go to folders, make sure you can view hidden files then go to ipod control click device then delete the file named _locked. unplugged ur ipod and its unlocked.
You could try resetting the classic to it's default settings but this will wipe the data on the classic. You do this by connecting your ipod to your computer then under devices click on your ipod and then click restore and follow the instructions to complete the restore process. It may be the case if you have backed up the classic before in itunes you could restore it back to what was on it before but it could again restore the combination to the one you do not know.
According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
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. If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. 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." Good Luck, I hope this helps Please Rate me...Thank You
this should help you below. If you have set a password on the volume limit and forgot the password please let me know cause you will then have to remove the password or restore the device.
This is only one step in trying to remove the volume limit it may work or it may not and you will have to use another method. But please tell me if this method works and if it doesnt i will instruct you on where to go from here.
To set the maximum volume limit for iPod classic:
1 Choose Settings > Volume Limit.
The volume control shows the current volume.
2 Use the Click Wheel to select the maximum volume limit.
You can press Play to hear the currently selected song play while you select the
maximum volume limit.
3 Press Play/Pause to set the maximum volume limit.
A triangle on the volume bar indicates the maximum volume limit.
4 Press the Menu button to accept the maximum volume limit without requiring a
combination to change it. Or, on the Enter Combination screen, set a combination to
require that the combination be entered to change the maximum volume limit.

I myself have a 4gb iPod Mini, so i can't transfer my full library to my iPod, at least until i get a Classic. But in your case, you need to set up your iPod ot let you manually manage your music, and setting your iPod to only sync sonts that are checked in your library. When you manually manage your music you choose the music you want on it by Playlist, so the LimeWire playlist (that should have already been set up with the first song you downloaded from the program) will need to be checked in the "Playlists" box under the "Music" tab the next time you sync it.
Hope that helps!
