Re: ipod nano

Try reinstalling itunes and restarting the PC with the device not plugged in. Then when it boots back up econnect the iPod, it should resolve your issue.

A1199 unlock code

Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.

Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

My itunes won't detect my ipod nano 4gb

well sometimes what people do is that they plug in the usb cable before the computer is on and it wont recognize the ipod. You have to turn off the computer and wait till it is on and then plug it in.
