How do I reset my I pods passcode?

If your iPod is disabled from a passcode that is entered too many times or you don't remember the passcode you'll want to follow:

It will instruct your to put your iPod into recovery mode to do a restore to factory setting (this will erase the iPod).

If you have a backup available, that doesn't have the passcode in it then use:

Be warned that if the passcode is on the backup and you do not know the code, then you will be back to square one and have to restore it to factory settings again. Good luck!

I put a passcode on my ipod nano and i cant remember it

Good day,

I came across a few situations where someone has forgotten their iPod's passcode and now can't use it.

I will give some instructions on how to possibly repair this problem.

The first thing you can try is to connect your Ipod to it's HOME Computer. This will normally override the lock. Only thing is that you need the lock code to be able to assign a new code.

Another method I came across is to connect your Ipod to a computer. Make sure you are able to see all hidden folders. Browse to your Ipod on My Computer and double click on your Ipod folder/location. Open the folder named "iPod_Control" inside the folder open the folder "Device". Inside the device folder rename the file "_locked" to "_unlocked".

These two methods has worked for me in the past, so please feel free to let me know if this help you!

The only positive side to this is that your music, video, contacts and calendar settings will still be in tact but you may lose text messages mail and so on.

One more possibility: if you were able to recently sync your iPod with iTunes before you forgot your passcode, when you perform a restore, iTunes will put all of the data of your last sync in iTunes (before the passcode issue) back onto your iPod.

• This is the process which will allow you to regain access to your children's iPods.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to reply back to this post.

If you can't remember your passcode, you will have to use iTunes to restore you Touch. Remember that restoring will erase eveything on the Touch, make sure you have made a backup of your data first.
Here is detailed steps on restoring:

Unlock code from ipod

It depends on the severity and the settings you have given the iPod... Here's the full explanation. I would recommend reading the second paragraph first, but the solution if you really forgot your password is in the first paragraph.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present. Refer to "Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software."

"If you enter the wrong passcode too many times, you'll see a message that says "iPhone is disabled" and to try again later. If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It  can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode."
