The latest iPod Nano includes a locking feature, which allow users to set a four-digit combination to keep intruders from using the device. However, if you find that you forget what code you set on your iPod, you will need an alternate way of unlocking your iPod Nano. Once the device has been successfully unlocked, you can continue listening to music on it.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC. Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal features again. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: Ipod nano lock forgot password

First, try to restore using iTunes. If this doesn't work, place your iPod in disk mode (hold the menu and center buttons down togther) and as soon as you see the Apple symbol come up hold the center and play (bottom) buttons down together until you see a check mark (disk mode). It may take a few trys.

Now connect your iPod to your computer. Go to my computer and right click the drive associate with your iPod (for example F: ) and scroll down to FORMAT. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - CHOOSE FAT32 and then check the "Quick Format" box. After you do this then use iTunes to Restore your iPods another time.

Hi trollingston,

You should be able to unlock the iPod using Itunes. Plug the iPod into the computer that you normally use to update it, open iTunes and then synch the iPod. That should unlock it. When you unplug the iPod from the computer it should operate normally.

Best Regards,
Ken

SOURCE: how do i reset my nano ipod password ive tried the apple instructions?

---If you do this you won't lose music"---
Well I went to my computer clicked my ipod and when the folders came up you go up top to "tools and folder options" and go to the tab that says "view" and click the one that says "show hidden folders." Then click "ipod control" then "Device" and delete the file that says "_lock" or something on that line. If you any questions email me at wolffa@mhs-pa.org

SOURCE: I have accidentally locked my ipod nano Version

My brother did the same thing on his.

Hold in both the center button and the play button for a few seconds until a white apple appears.

This will not reset your music.

When it reappears you should be good to go.

If it worked out good, please give me a good rating. Thanks!

If you forgot your password, you'll have to restore it using itunes and reload your music. Its very unfortunate when a password is forgotten for ipods because a restore is your only option. Sorry for the bad news. Hope you don't have to loose music over it. Good luck

Info


I have received a IPod Nano 2 GB Silver as a gift. How do I find if it is a 1st Gen or 2nd Gen. Model number is A1199 and Part Number is MA477ZT/A. The pack looks like similar to one in Apple Store website (http://a248.e.akamai.net/7/248/8352/...quirements.jpg).

Any one has picture of the 1st Gen Nano package.Look here. Yours will be second gen - first gen only came in black or white.

thanks regards JAN_yuanjia please rate it
