Hi babyfoxyred 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. 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. Please take time to rate me Bud
OS (operating system) of your ipod is corrupt for one reason or the
other. The ipod won't boot or start because the start-up file or
necessary files needed to boot up the ipod are corrupt.
solution to the problem is to re-installing the OS (operating system) of
the ipod by restoring the ipod. To achieve this, you will be needs a
USB cord for your ipod model and i-tunes installed on your computer.
Once you have i-tunes installed on your computer and a USB cord, then
the job will be done and your ipod will be back to normal again.
If you don't have i-tunes installed on your computer, go to www.apple.com Click
on i-tunes and download i-tunes for free, then install it on your
computer. After installing and downloading i-tunes, follow the below
Run the i-tune program on your computer Connect the USB to your I-pod Connect the other end to your computer Wait
a while for the computer to recognize and install the ipod, then read
and follow instructions on the i-tune. It will ask you to restore your
ipod. But if the i-tunes doesn't recognize the ipod via your PC,
press and hold the Power button and the home button for 5 to 10 seconds.
Leave the power button and keep pressing the home button or vice-ver-sa
till the restore option comes up. Click on restore and follow instructions thereafter.
After the whole restore process, your i-pod will be back to normal again.
Make sure you back up your ipod if the files on it are very important
to you. Start by syncing your iPod with your computer. When you do this,
the iPod management screen will appear. Midway down that screen there's
a button that reads "Restore."
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
You will have to create a I tunes account in order to update the bios and drivers.
After you install I tunes to your computer then connect your I Pod to the computer with I tunes running using the data cord.
Then I tunes will sync with your player and then you will be able to update the I Pod.
It will ask you if you want to sync with this computer....you will reply yes.
You can then add all your music, pictures, videos into I tunes and the I Pod will then be recognized by the computer as your souce computer.

****, I was hoping someone answered this because this is exactly what I want to know too! I don't want to spend money on a new transmitter when replacing that stupid rubber piece will probably be enough.
You can unlock iPod in one of two ways:
1...Enter the combination on iPod using the same controls you used to set the combination. If you do not enter the correct combination, the digits onscreen flash red. When you enter the combination correctly, iPod will unlock and return you to the last viewed screen.
2...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.
If you can’t unlock iPod using either of these methods, you can 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.
Important: Apple 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.
I hope this helps
