Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Nano. Plug the other end of the USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer. Open the iTunes program by using the Dock on a Mac or the Start menu on a PC.

  • Select your iPod Nano from the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to make a connection between your computer and your iPod Nano.
  • Click on the "Eject" symbol once the syncing process is complete. Remove your iPod Nano from the USB cable. The iPod's lock code will now be reset and you will be able to access all features again.
  • Navigate to the "Screen Lock" option in the iPod menu to lock your iPod's screen again. Since your iPod's lock code was just reset, you will be prompted to select a new four-digit code.

    this should get ya going again

    Connect your iPod to your computer, and use iTunes to restore the iPod to factory settings. You'll then need to resync all media to the iPod.

    My son has accidently put the screen lock on my daughters ipod nano & she can't remember the 4 digit code. Help!

    1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
    2. Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal.
    3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.

    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    The Version section tells you whether iPod nano is up to date or needs a newer version
    of the software.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.

    ---If you do this you won't lose music"---
    Well I went to my computer clicked my ipod and when the folders came up you go up top to "tools and folder options" and go to the tab that says "view" and click the one that says "show hidden folders." Then click "ipod control" then "Device" and delete the file that says "_lock" or something on that line. If you any questions email me at
