SOURCE: how do i unlock an ipod with " ipod disabled".

If you are the original owner of the iPod just connect it to the computer that you first synced the device with.
If you have found an iPod that had a lock code on it and have attempted to guess the passwords incorrectly too many times, I recommend you do the right thing and give it back to the original owner if you can.
If you cannot find the original owner I see no point in letting a good piece of technology go to waste so follow these instructions.
1) Turn off the iPod by holding down the power button (button on the top) and sliding the slider across to shut it off.
2) Find your Sync Cable and Plug it into the computer (just the computer, not the iPod yet)
3) Open iTunes
4) Hold down the home button.  (Button at the bottom)  While still holding down the button connect the sync cable to the iPod.
This should put the iPod into recovery mode.  Once in recovery mode iTunes should pop up a message stating that it has detected an iPod in recovery mode and should allow you to restore it.  This will delete all of the data/music on the iPod but will allow you to use it as if it were new.

SOURCE: how to unlock my ipod 8gb

well i cannot give you the password cause the password is set by you the owner. But if you do not know the password that is not a problem follow these steps and you shouldnt have a problem claiming ownership of your ipod touch back. 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." If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.

Try to connect it to your computer, open iTunes and Click Restore. You will lose all your music[if you're like me it's all still on the computer so no worries] but it should fix your problem.

My ipod nano 3gen 8gb is on screenlock and is asking for a code to unlock I have not put a code on my ipod before. Can you help me unlock my ipod without restoring and losing my songs.


Unlock Screen Lock and Volume Lock for Windows Vista

First you need to click on My Computer with your iPod connected.
The click on the iPod, click organized, select folder and search options, now click View the click to show hidden files and folders then click apply.

You should now see a folder named iPod_Control, click into this, then click device, now delete the file named: _locked to reset the screen lock and delete _volumelocked
