Connect 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.

You can also restore your iPod to factory settings. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to 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.
You should be able to view all your data on you ipod whne you plug it into you computer and view the files like you were viewing files on a hard drive or flash drive and you can back up your data by copying and pasting it in a folder on your computer. Then if you have to restore you can copy it back to the ipod when you're done restoring.

Hope this helps!

I can't remember the code i was just wonder i have a 2gb ipod apple and my son locked my ipod and iforgot the code so what do i do


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...Thanks

Iforgot my lock combination for the ipod


You have to restore the ipod using itunes. An apple rep will tell you the same thing. It sucks to loose your music if you don't have all of the music on your computer; and that people assume just because you forgot your password you stole it. Hope this information is helpful to your issue :)

Ipod nano security code


Try this:

  1. Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Nano. Plug the other end of the USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer. Open the iTunes program by using the Dock on a Mac or the Start menu on a PC.
  2. Select your iPod Nano from the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to make a connection between your computer and your iPod Nano.
  3. Click on the "Eject" symbol once the syncing process is complete. Remove your iPod Nano from the USB cable. The iPod's lock code will now be reset and you will be able to access all features again.
  4. Navigate to the "Screen Lock" option in the iPod menu to lock your iPod's screen again. Since your iPod's lock code was just reset, you will be prompted to select a new four-digit code.

Forgot screen unlock code black apple ipod model no a1136 My ipod is locked and i forgot the code


For those forgetful people

all right guys i have a solution for this but it will require some work first:
  • Mount the nano (plug it in)
  • Navigate to X:\iPod_Control\Device\ (where X is the drive letter of the iPod)
  • Find the file called "_locked" and open it with Notepad or TextEdit
now u should get some thing like : Vôáijåö\féúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD as the text but its not that con fusing to show here are two diffrent codes

Vôáijåö\féúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD
the same!
]óãhjåö\féúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD
so in fact the part that matters is the first 4.... and its a 4 digit code!!

soooo i have made a guide line.. for u to match up your code with

0000
