Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
When I try to adjust the volume on my Ipod Nano under Settings it is asking me for a code. How do I reset the code or find out what the code is? Is there another way to increase the volume, it appears to be locked and is very low. I need to unlock the volume so that I can increase it. The screen I see is almost like a combination lock. Can you please help me?
If it is the unlock code plug your ipod into itunes then goto to settings for the device and click change password

I had a problem with low volume when using the headphones supplied. I got a £15 JVC pair with built in bass boost. Now i enjoy listening to my tunes on the move as they should be. Scouser.

To bypass and reset the code, you have to plugin ipod and in Itunes say use as disk, after that go into the ipod folder via my computer and select show hidden files in extra (map options)
To see hidden files:
On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
Click the View tab.
Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.
then go into ipodcontrol then Device and delete _volumeControl

Most likely it is a code that your parents, or whomever used to lock the volume thru itunes.
You would need to get it from them as there is no way to "hack" the password.
Best of Luck.

Tips for a great answer:
Resetting the volume limit on your iPod Nano affects everything you listen to, from music to audio books. You can adjust the volume for each individual item on your Nano using the click wheel, but the highs and lows of the sound will depend on the overall volume limit setting. Volume levels will vary with different ear buds and headphones, and using external devices like docking stations to play your iPod Nano will also cause variation in the volume.
1 Press any button on your iPod Nano's click wheel and turn it on. Press the "menu" button at the top of the click wheel until you reach the iPod menu.
2 Select "Settings" from this menu by scrolling down until "Settings" is highlighted, then click the center button.
3 Select "Playback" from the menu choices that show up.
4 Select "Volume Limits." You will reach a screen with a speaker icon and dots indicating the level of volume your iPod is currently set on.
5 Scroll the wheel up or back to adjust the volume limits. Press the center button and you will have the option to lock in your settings by selecting a four-digit combination lock. This is not a necessary step; you can click on "done" and finish. Setting the combination allows you to have more control over any future changes to your iPod's volume limits. Scroll the click wheel to select your combination. Press the center button and you will revisit the volume limits; adjust it as you like and press the center button.
