You might be able to restore the iPod, you just need to put it in a different mode. Try plugging it into your computer. Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons at the same time until the screen goes black (can take longer than 10 seconds) then let go of the sleep button (the button on the top of the unit) while keeping the home button held in (the button on the front of the iPod). Keep the home button held in until your computer recognizes new hardware. You should hear some sort of sound coming from your computer speakers. That and the "installing new hardware" notice should come up in your taskbar (this is where you computer shows the clock). Let go of the home button once this happens. Open up iTunes and then restore it.

Just a little FYI - it may take longer than 4 minutes before you can a response. You might want to wait at least a few hours before bumping your thread. Remember that this is a normal work week and not everyone is on these forums during normal working hours (ie 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM). Most of the traffic here on iLounge is during the evening.

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.

Fix Disabled ITouch that ITunes will not recognize


If your itouch reads "disabled connect to itunes" and shows the "locked" icon and your itunes will not even recognize the device and itunes says your itouch is locked and enter password, Here is what you do to restore your itouch: (you will lose all itouch contents but it is worth it as almost all say it is broken and worthless)
1. Turn off your itouch or ipod. Do not have charger / usb connected to ipod or itouch.
2. With device off, connect the charger end of the cable to the itouch / ipod but do not plug the usb into the computer.
3. Open Itunes
3. While holding down the menu button (and I mean keep holding it down), plug the usb into the computer.
4. Wait to see the new wonderful graphic on your device and computer screen that shows that your ipod / itouch is recognized.
Your itouch will start immediately restoring itself and you are ready to fill it up with wonderful images, photos and videos again!
So happy to share this tip. It saved me money and time.

My ipod is disabled


to unlock it now, you'd have to hit the "restore" button in itunes when you plug in your ipod and it shows the status screen. if this fails you as well, go to the nearest apple retail store and they can help you unlock it.

By "disabled" do you mean you have used the in-feature locking system on the ipod for protection?

For iTunes, Make sure you have the usb cables firmly attached to both the iPod and the computer. Go to:

1) Start bar on your computer
2) Look for "iTunes" in your programs
3) Click on "iTunes" to open it up.

If your iPod is connected to your computer, after about 20 seconds, iTunes should read your iPod and show it.

Also, if you have "disabled" it, it may just be as simple as resetting your iPod.

How to reset:

1) Move the "lock" on your ipod to locked position then quickly back to unlocked.
2) Hold then Menu and Center button down together till the Apple logo comes up. This should take only max 10 seconds.
3) It should return to the main menu on the iPod.

Hope I Helped, :-) Good luck. Don't worry, your father won't kill you, he might be disapointed, but definetly not that.
(I know from previous experience).

Thanks to everyone who provided solution inputs. I finally have my iPod back. The solution is: 1. Turn of your iPod. 2. While holding down the 'Home' button, connect to iTunes WARNING: Doing this will return your iPod back to original 'out of the box' settings and you will lose everything. On the bright side, you get a 'fresh' start and it will auto update to the most recent software version. Good luck!
