I do not know if this is what you are having difficulties with but when I first got the 30 gig iPod I did not realize that I needed to squeeze the plug on both this sides to remove it from the iPod. If this is not your difficulty then perhaps you should try to describe it in more detail.

I have a gen 1 ipod touch which is disabled i have forgotten password and have a new computer with new verison of Itunes I have tried everything to enable ipod with no luck. Please help


Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the computer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is disabled/locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord.
Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. You can then go into the ipod and install a new pass code if you wish to.

Hope this helps,
Rob

I brought a previous owned ipod touch whzt do i do to get password changed and then apply my own password and new name ?


First of all download Itunes if you haven't done that already. Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the ccomputer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord.
Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. Now with iTunes still open look under devices click on the little ipod icon and then click on the name and you can add your name and press enter. Press the little triangle next to the name you added to disconnect fron iTunes and unplug the USB cable. As for adding a new passcode, go into your ipod and go to settings on your ipod and go to general and go to passcode. its only a 4 number combination.
I hope this helped.
Cheers Rob

Broken ipod, broken heart


Am soooo sorry 2 hear dat ya broke ya ipod.. but try dese it mite help ya access ya ipod..

But am not sure if its a screen lock or passcode lock..
If screen lock den basic reset n restart should work

but if its passcode den u must restore your iPod software from iTunes.
See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software”

Dont restore from backup if you have a passcode that you cant remeber.

You have to restore your ipod as a "new" device & then re-sync your content. Restoring from a backup will merely restore the lock.

But make sure before ya restore ya iPod u have a backup of d songs data n etc in d comp or els wer..

Hope it wors out 4 ya:)

I have bought a brand new ipod touch, installed itunes and my ipod will not load. Just has a picture of the usb line and the itunes signal. Tried reistalling and restarting computer. Help!


This picture means you need to sync the new ipod with your computer.  Meaning they got to get close and acquainted. 
Restart your computer.  Open up itunes and wait for it to load.  Then take the USB sync cord and connect one end to the ipod and the other end to the USB port on your computer.  Click set up new ipod and type in a name you want to use.  Follow the on screen instructions and don't disconnect the ipod until your computer says its done and its safe to disconnect.

Please can you help I have a white 30G ipod, trying to coonect to laptop running Vista. I have itunes installed and it wont reconize the ipod


You might need a new USB cord. Try launching iTunes before connecting the iPod, and using a different USB port. If that doesn't work, try a different cord ( maybe borrow one )

Don't know how to reject the ipod nano when charging at computer


  1. Once the iPod is attached to the iPod and USB port in the computer, an icon will appear at the bottom of the computer desktop. The icon is from removing the USB Mass Storage Device
  2. Now, click on the enject icon and it will show which drive the USB cord is attached to. Once the icon is clicked on, the iPod will show an arrow going down and reading "OK to disconnect". Once able to disconnect, the USB cord can be removed from iPod.
  3. Another way to eject the iPod from USB cord is through iTunes. Once anything you want sync'd to your iPod is complete, a message will appear on the iPod reading, "OK to disconnect". Just like it did on the ejecting icon on your desktop.

Does not charge


Well, it sounds as though your battery is shot. However, before completely giving up i would restore the ipod in itunes and then let it fully charge. After it says "fully" charged, disconnect and test. if it still has no charge, reset it by holding down both the menu and center buttons until you see an apple appear on the screen. If after these steps it still does not charge i would check into getting a new battery either through iPodbatterydepot.com or by calling apple tech support at 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273) Good luck
