My daughter locked my ipod nano 2gb now i cant un lock it

Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

No big deal. you'll be all set

I have forgotton my password model no.A1199

If you forgot your password, you'll have to restore it using itunes and reload your music. Its very unfortunate when a password is forgotten for ipods because a restore is your only option. Sorry for the bad news. Hope you don't have to loose music over it. Good luck

Is there a way to override or reset the password on the iPod Nano

Unfortunately, if the password has been forgotten, you will have to "Restore" the iPod, which will erase all the songs and other files that are currently on there.

To update or restore iPod nano:
1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of
iTunes from
2 Connect iPod nano to your computer.
3 In iTunes, select iPod nano in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.
The Version section tells you whether iPod nano is up to date or needs a newer version
of the software.
4 Click Update to install the latest version of the software.
5 If necessary, click Restore to restore iPod nano to its original settings (this erases all data
from iPod nano). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.

Ipod 2gb nano

Hi Blaine,
Connect it to iTunes and use the Restore feature on the main screen when it's connected. This will keep all the songs but restore all the settings to default values. And you're done!

All the best
