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_ControlDevice (where X is the drive letter of the iPod)
• Find the file called "_locked" and open it with Notepad or TextEdit
nowu should get some thing like : Vôáijåö éúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD as thetext but its not that con fusing to show here are two diffrent codes

Vôáijåö éúPbíþT~ñâHzõæLvùê@rýîD
the same!

so in fact the part that matters is the first 4.... and its a 4 digit code!!

I do not know if this will work but give it a try and let me know if it works it wont hurt anything loaded to ipod ... make sure hold switch is off press and hold the center button and menu button until you see the Apple logo comes on and release the buttons. That should reset the ipod to the manufacture settings without loosing any files loaded to it. Let me know if it works thanks and good luck
