Hi,

You can reset a lost iPod password.

  1. Plug in your iPod.
  2. Wait for it to load completely.
  3. Open My Computer (or computer if on Vista). Make sure you can view hidden files.
  4. Go to iPod_control.
  5. Go to the folder named Device.
  6. If your iPod is locked, there will be a file _locked . Rename the file to _unlocked.
  7. Safely remove your iPod and it will be cleared.
Hope this helps !
Awaiting response.
Thanks.

Login my itunes account


Do you mean the password for your iPod or your apple account? If it's your apple account you can go through apple's website and retrieve your username and/or reset your password
My Apple ID

If it's your iPod password you forgot, then unfortunately you will need to reset your device and delete everything on it to get it working again. Here's a link to do just that:

How to reset the password on your iPod when you forgot it


<p>Apple included an option to restrict access to your iPod through the creation of a PIN code to lock the screen and to keep unwanted users. Unfortunately forgot your password, not being able to access your music when you're on. If you draw a blank password, you can reset it, but not before you get home to your computer. Use your iPod to your iTunes software to reset the security code. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod. Enter the password appears. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod to the computer you normally sync. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Run iTunes and wait for the iPod name appears in the left pane of the iTunes window. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click the "Eject" icon next to the iPod name in the left pane. The device is unlocked. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Select "Extras" iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Open the "Lock Screen" option. <br /> <p><br /> <p>7. Select "Turn off Screen Lock" Lock Screen menu. <br />

I forgot my password and i saw how to fix it but i dont now if every thing in my i pod will be there after i do it


If you use the restore feature in iTunes, it will return your iPod to factory settings. The songs/videos/games will be gone from the actual iPod, but they will remain in your iTunes Library and computer. You will need to upload them to your iPod again, but you won't need to re-buy anything.

MY IPOD IS DISABLED BECAUSE I FORGOT THE PASSWORD AND IT SAYS IPOD DISABLED CONNECT TO ITUNES WHEN I CONECT TO ITUNES IT SAYS ENTER PASSWORD HOW CAN I ENTER THE PASSWORD IF I FORGOT IT!!! I NEED HELP:(


Step 1: Turn on your computer, and connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod.

Step 2: Open up iTunes on your computer.

Step 3: In iTunes, go to the left side of your screen and scroll down, when you see your iPod, select it.

Step 4: You should now see on the right side of your screen some general iPod information. Scroll down to until you see a "Restore" button. This will erase everything that was on the iPod, and sync whatever is in your iTunes library. It is the only known way.

Note: If this was helpful please vote for this solution!

Connect to iTunes, go to the settings menu of your iPod (click on the picture of your ipod on the bar on the side.) Then click "restore my ipod's settings," or something similar to that. You will have to re-sync your ipod, but your password will be removed. hope it helps
