Restoring iPod to factory settings Learn how to restore iPod, iPod classic, iPod mini, and iPod nano to factory settings.

Background

It's important to understand the difference between updating and restoring. Updating simply installs the software that controls iPod and does not affect the songs and files stored on iPod's disk. Restoring erases the iPod's disk and restores iPod to its original factory condition.
Warning: Because restoring erases all the songs and files on iPod, back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library. If you use the Nike + iPod Sport Kit, see this document for more information.
Note: See this article if you need to restore an iPod shuffle.

How to restore iPod

  1. Verify that you have an active Internet connection, because you may need to download new versions of the iTunes and iPod Software.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if necessary.
  3. Open iTunes. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel. You will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes window.
  6. Click Restore.
  7. If you are using a Mac, you will be asked to enter an administrator's name and password.
  8. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen, indicating that stage one of the restore process has begun. When this stage is done, iTunes will present one of two messages with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    • Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
  9. During stage two of the restore process, the iPod displays an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remain connected to the computer or iPod power adapter during this stage.
    Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see, because the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  10. After stage two of the restore process is complete, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear. It will ask you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences, as it did when you connected your iPod for the first time.

How can I get into my ipod if I forgot my pass code?


you might have to reset it to factory settings

The 4th generation iPod is a portable media device that can play music, videos, and display photos.

Occasionally, you may run into issues with the iPod where the player has trouble working.


Restoring your iPod to its factory settings will often correct any software issues the player may have by wiping all of the data off of the iPod, and restoring its software to its original condition.


Restoring your 4th generation iPod can be done in just a few minutes, and requires the help of your computer.


Connect your iPod to your computer using the included USB cable, just as if you were going to sync it to add music or other data.


Launch iTunes if it does not launch automatically, and select your 4th generation iPod from the list of devices on the left side of the screen.


This will launch information about your iPod in the main iTunes window.


Click the "Restore" button in the middle of the iTunes window to begin restoring your 4th generation iPod to its factory settings.


Your computer may ask you to enter an administrative username and password to continue. A progress bar will then appear letting you know the status of the restore.


Wait for the progress bar on the screen to finish and then disconnect your 4th generation iPod.


The iPod is now restored to its factory settings.

You can reattach the iPod to your computer and set it up again, just as you did the first time you used it.

My ipod touch is locked and i cant remember the code


Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

Unfortunately if your iPod Touch is locked and you cannot recall the pass code to unlock it, you will have to perform a factory restore, in order to clear your iPod Touch of that previous pass code.

The good thing is, even though you will wipe all your current data on your iPod Touch, after the factory restore, you can restore your most current back up through iTunes to restore the data back to your iPod.

To restore your iPod Touch is simple:
* Be sure you restore your iPod Touch on the same computer or notebook that your previous iPod Touch backup files or stored.

* Now, make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes.
• Be sure your iPod Touch is correctly connected to computer or notebook .

• Finally, in the left column under DEVICES, click on your iPod Touch, then click on Restore under the Summary tab.

* Allow the process to complete and your iPod Touch will be restored to its original factory default settings.

* Now simply re-sync your iPod Touch with iTunes and this is where your last sync now comes into play. When you sync after the restore, iTunes will look for your iPod Touch's previous backup and per your permission, will restore your most recent backup to your device.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This time, when you set up your pass code... Make sure to write it down somewhere or in a place that is easily accessible and a in a place that you won't soon forget.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

The ipod unlock code is fixed by the user. You can restore that code:
Connect iPod to the main computer you use (computer with which iPod synced with), and open iTunes. Now disconnect the iPod from the computer, it will be unlocked.
