To unlock plug it into original computer...if thats not enough open itunes.
If it is still asking for code and you can't remember it try this:(I got this from John on here and it worked for me)- with ipod still plugged in...
Go to My computer- click on tools - folder options - then the VIEW tab - tick the box for 'show hidden files and folders' - click OK -
now click on ipod (in my computer) a light file called Ipod control double click- then Device double click - then _locked file right click and delete - disconnect ipod from computer.
this should have taken the code screen away and you're at main menu. you can reset your code.... but sometimes you need to re-boot your ipod.
You can do that by flicking the hold switch over and back...then holding in the middle button and menu together until the Apple logo appears and release.
NONE OF THESE ACTIONS ERASE YOUR STORED INFO.

Unlock an iPod Model A1199
Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.
Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

What you can do for that Lisa is you can press and hold the middle button and the top that says menu. Hold those until you see an apple symbol then you'll need to press and hold the middle button and the bottom button that has the play/pause symbols on it.
