It has a passcode .i forget my passcode how can i retrieve my passcode?

To undo the password on an iPod you must plug the iPod into the computer and load up iTunes. Select the iPod in the navigation bar on the left hand side of iTunes. Under the first tab in the main window, a Restore/Reset button should be displayed. Click this, iTunes will ask for confirmation on your actions, click yes. This will reset your iPod's memory. After the process is complete you will need to resync all of your music, videos, etc.

Cant get music on

a lot of the ipod's are a pain because they only want you to use their downloads and their music. If you are just trying to transfer music from your music on your computer to the ipod it won't except it. The music will show it transfered to the ipod but won't show up on it because apple with all of their ipods use a different format for their songs which only the ipod can read. I have tried every way around this and you just have to breakdown and go through itunes. You can take all your music you have on your computer now and put it on itunes then load it on your ipod and it will transfer fine. Good news is that itunes is free, lol.

How do i transfer my ipod music to my mac ?

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

To transfer music from your iPod Nano, you need to first have iTunes installed on your Mac.

Then you need to have music in your iTunes library, whether you are importing the music from your favorite CDs into iTunes, or if you are purchasing music directly from the Apple iTunes Music store, it has to be in the iTunes library.

Once you have your desired music in your iTunes library, follow this link below, which will guide you into transferring music into your iPod.

I hope this helps.

My hard drive on my mac was changed how do i down load the files from my 4g i dont want to loose pictures

You may try this ipod transfer, it can help you copy songs, videos, movie, photos, playlists, podcasts from iPod to computer iTunes. It supports all series of iPod including iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPod Classic, iPod Shuffle, even the iPhone. it's safe and works pretty well for me. Moreover, it will keep the songs play information - rating, playcount, name, artist, playlist, etc. No other iPod transfer can do that
Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.

I can't put song from my computer to my ipod and when i connect it to my computer the icon of songs doesn't appear only device and accessories

  1. Double-click on the "iTunes" icon to open the program and then transfer all of your music filesinto iTunes. To add music from CDs, simply load a CD into yourcomputer's drive, wait for iTunes to see the playlist and then click"Import." To add music from another program, go to the "File" menu andselect "Add to Library." You will then be able to click on any musicfiles you would like to transfer.
  2. Plug your iPod into a USB port on your computer and wait for iTunes toautomatically recognize the device. You will be asked to name andregister your iPod, after which you can click "Finish" and begin toload music.
  3. Click on "Library," found in the left hand column to reveal all of themusic you have transfered to iTunes. To load songs onto your iPod,highlight one or more songs and then drag them to your iPod. Your iPodwill be found in the same column where you found the library, under thename you chose earlier. As soon as you drop the files into your iPod,they will quickly copy.
  4. Eject your iPod once you have loaded all of the music you'd like byclicking on the arrow next to your iPod's name. When the namedisappears, you can remove the USB cable and begin enjoying your portable music.
Here is where you can get ITUNES:

Snapbox mp3/mp4 player

It should tell you in the instructions that you need to download iTunes for Windows since it sounds like you're not on a Mac. All the controls for transferring music and synching photos etc are in iTunes. When you attach the iPod, you're connecting it to allow the transfer of files as though it was a USB Flash Memory stick, but this allows you to store other files such as Word docs on the iPod -- it does not allow you to transfer music. A big part of the reason for this is the digital rights management that the music labels insist upon.

Can I view photos on my iPod photo/"Color"? nano?

Depending on the model, to view photos on your iPod photo/"Color", you either need to import photographs using Apple's iPod Camera Connector, or transfer images from your computer through iTunes 4.7 or higher to the iPod. For the current iPod U2 Special Edition "Color", iPod "Color" (20.0 GB), the version of the iPod photo (60 GB) introduced on February 23, 2005 and renamed iPod "Color" (60 GB) on June 28, 2005, as well as the discontinued iPod photo (30 GB), the simplest way to transfer photos from many digital cameras to your iPod is to purchase and use Apple's iPod Camera Connector (US$29). This device simply allows you to directly connect a digital camera to the camera connector and in turn connect the camera connector to the iPod "dock" port. Photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector are immediately viewable, with the exception of RAW format images and video clips. However, photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector cannot be immediately viewed as a slideshow with transitions. On versions of the iPod photo (40 GB, 60 GB) released prior to February 23, 2005, photos transferred directly from a digital camera using an iPod-compatible media reader are not immediately viewable, but photos transferred through iTunes 4.7 or higher, which converts photos into a "thumbnail" format, can be viewed on the iPod photo itself or displayed using the iPod photo connected to a TV or projector. The iPod nano, introduced September 7, 2005, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but as it lacks video out, it cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera. For information regarding the iPod nano and accessory compatibility, please refer to Apple Support
