Bought a used iPod, it's a older one. And everytime I try to down load it wants previous owners email password. How do I change this to my own information?

You could factory reset the iPod but you will loose all data on it. Once the iPod comes back from reset and go through the configuration setup you can chose a new passcode.

Step 1 Press the Sleep/Wake button on the top of your iPod and press the Home button at the same time.
Step 2
Hold both buttons for 10 seconds.
Step 3
Release the buttons when you see the Apple logo appear on the display. Your iPod is now reset to its factory defaults and you will be guided through the initial setup process. After resetting your iPod, you'll need to sign in using your Apple ID and set up iCloud usage.

How to unlock ipod


there are two options by which you can unblock the ipod. Follow any of the procedures tomorrow.
Unlock with the Primary Computer
  1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
  2. Open itunes and sync the iPod as normal.
  3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.
Unlock by Restoring
  1. Restore the iPod to factory settings if you do not have access to your primary computer. This erases all of the data you have stored on the iPod.
  2. Plug your iPod into the new computer you want to be the primary computer. Open iTunes and click on the "Restore" button.
  3. Reload your data, if it is available and sync your iPod. Remove it following normal procedures.

Is this your first time using the iPod since buying this from ebay? There are two ways on how you can do this:
1. By connecting it to the primary computer and syncing it with iTunes. Please take note that this needs to be the primary computer you have connected it with.
2. If it is not, then your final resort would be to do a factory reset of the iPod. This will delete all files, music etc on your iPod and will restore it to factory default. You need to use the iPod updater to reset it.
Good luck.
