You can reset its password....but you'll lose all your data. Here's how...

  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
  2. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
  3. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.

    Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" , let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again.
  4. Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  5. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message:

    If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPhone and repeat steps 3-6.

Changed passcode -- ipod touch 8gb


Hi,

It seems that you will have to restore you ipod touch i'm afraid! So, i hope you have your things backed up.

Ok the steps to take are:

1) Connect the iPod Touch
2) Press and hold sleep+home until the device reboots.
3) Keep holding until that "please connect me to iTunes"-screen appears
4) iTunes says something about having detected a touch in recovery mode. Allow it to do its thing.

If you get the -18 error, proceed:

5) Disconnect the iPod Touch
6) Close iTunes
7) Reconnect the iPod Touch
8) iTunes launches and shows message as in step 4, but this time, the recovery will work

Hope this helps,

Karlos

I forgot my password and is locked


OOPS, try this:
connect it to your computer and click reset when your ipod nano comes up on itunes. you should click on the ipod name in the left side of your screen (lwhere the itunes library and store icons are located) and there should be a button that says restore or reset your ipod to origional settings. it will erase all passwords.
Let me know if this helps

I have forgotten my pass code that unlocks my IPod, so right now i can not use it at all


If you cannot remember the passcode, restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode. Good luck!
