I have a 8g ipod nano model number a1199 and i got it awhile back and i lost it. recently i found it and forgot the password. is there anyway i could reset the whole ipod... or whatelce could i do?


The latest iPod Nano includes a locking feature, which allow users to set a four-digit combination to keep intruders from using the device. However, if you find that you forget what code you set on your iPod, you will need an alternate way of unlocking your iPod Nano. Once the device has been successfully unlocked, you can continue listening to music on it.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC. Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal features again. Hope it helps.

Forgot my password


Try plugging it into the computer you normally sync it with. Then open iTunes.
After iTunes recognizes your nano, you can eject and disconnect the iPod from your computer.

It should be unlocked now.



If that does not work, then you'll have to restore your iPod (which will remove *all* data from the iPod).
You can do that like this:
plug it in to your computer
launching iTunes
when iTunes recognizes your nano, click on the nano, then click on "Restore" (on the "Summary" tab).

Then follow the onscreen instructions.

You'll need to resync all your music, etc. to get it back on your iPod.


Hope this helps!

I forgot password how to unlock ipod nano


to unlock the ipod you have to remember the password that is set. Unless it is a ipod that has a slide switch on the top or side. If you do not remember the password that is not a problem. Follow the steps that i have outlined below. If this does not completely help your situation please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following: 1 If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage
its songs. . . Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. 2 Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. 3 Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC. 4 Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. 5 Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. 6 Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. 7 Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal features again. if that does not work you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod. If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination.
If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data." If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great day.

    I have an ipod nano 4/it is locked out and i cannot remember my


    Connect your iPod to the computer that your iPod is registered to (usually the one you have transfered music files from to your iPod). When your iPod is showing in the browser field in iTunes, disconnect your iPod according to proper way (different for PC and Mac).
    Your iPod should now be unlocked.
    Of course you must have iTunes opened on your computer, by default it opens automatically when you connect your iPod, but you might have altered the setting earlier.

    How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


    See these instructions for unlocking the iPod Screen Lock if you don't know the combination.

    1. You can connect it to the first computer it was every synced with (this should be your friend's computer?) Open iTunes, then disconnect the iPod. It should now be unlocked.
    2. If you can't do that, then you can restore the iPod to factory default settings. Note that this will erase all music and data from the iPod, along with the Screen Lock password.
