Unlock an iPod Model A1199
Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.
Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

Unlock an iPod Nano Code
With the latest iPod Nano model, you can set a four-digit code and lock all intruders from accessing your iPod.
In order to use the device's functions again, you need to enter the correct code.
However, if you happen to lose or forget the code, you will need to find another way to unlock your iPod Nano.

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.

My computer isnt recognising my white ipod cable to download from computer to ipod when i insert the white cable the computer doesnt register that its there and nothing happens on my ipod screen


First, Make sure the cord is plugged in all the way on the ipod and computer.  Also, you gots ta have itunes open so it will sync with the ipod.  Unplug the cord and try again.  Try the cord out on your friends or relatives ipod to see if you got a faulty cord.  If you got a bad cord, then throw it out and get you a new one. If the above don't works for ya then, unplug the cable.  Backup your itunes music. uninstall itunes.  Re-install the same version of itunes.  Open itunes and plug your ipod in making sure the connections are firm.  If that don't do it for ya, then your fu.k.d and need to take the thing back to the store for even exchange if your within your 30 day window or back to the Apple store if your within your 1 year window.  Note that Apple will reject you if you exposed this thing to liquids or dropped the thing.

Starting up with anew ipod touch


To use iPod touch, you need:
  1. A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 port and one of the following operating systems:
  • Mac OS X version 10.4.10 or later
  • Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later, Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition.
  • iTunes 7.6 or later, available at www.apple.com/itunes
  • iTunes Store account (to purchase music over Wi-Fi)
  • An Internet connection
Before you can use any of the iPod touch features, you must use iTunes to set up iPod touch. You can also register iPod touch and create an iTunes Store account.
  1. Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
  2. Connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the included cable. The USB port on most keyboards doesn’t provide enough power. Unless your keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port, you must connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on
    your computer
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to set up iPod touch and sync your music, video, photos, and other content. Your computer must be connected to the Internet. By default, iTunes automatically syncs all songs and videos in your iTunes library to
    iPod touch. If you have more content in your library than will fit on iPod touch, iTunes alerts you that it can’t sync your content. You’ll need to use iTunes to select some of your songs, videos, and other content to sync.
When you get back to France, you'll need sync it with your PC. Download the latest version of iTunes then sync your iPod with your computer.

I have a used iPod shuffle that works but iTunes does not respond


Hello,
Here are the instructions for how to setup and register your IPod
· Insert the CD that came with your iPod into your computer.
· Open My Computer, then double-click the iPod CD to start the installation.
· In the resulting dialog, choose your preferred language from the menu choices, then click OK.
· The iPod for Windows Install.

Wizard starts up. Follow the instructions to install ipod software onto your computer, connecting your iPod to your computer (if asked) as follows:
  • To connect iPod shuffle: Remove the USB cap and plug the USB connector into a high-powered USB port on your computer.
Note: High-powered USB ports are generally the ones that reside on your computer or on a powered USB hub. If you want your iPod battery to charge while connected, avoid using the USB port on your keyboard or non-powered USB hub.
· When your computer recognizes iPod, it may update software on your iPod if needed (click Update if you get a dialog that says your iPod needs to be reformatted or restored). When finished, your iPod software will be installed at the default location, C:Program FilesiPod (unless you choose another folder).
· The installer will then install iTunes if it isn't already installed on your computer, or if you have an older version installed than the one that came on your iPod CD.
· When the installation is complete, follow the instructions to restart your computer.
· Once your computer is back up, you should be greeted by the iPod Setup Assistant (if your iPod is still connected). Type a name for your iPod in the top field.
· Choose the "Automatically update songs on my iPod" checkbox if you want to sync your entire itunes music library and playlists to your iPod each time you plug it in. If you want control of what goes onto your iPod, deselect this checkbox.
· If you have an iPod with a color display, you can have iTunes automatically copy your photos to your iPod (using your settings in iTunes preferences) to fill any remaining space by choosing the "Automatically copy photos to my iPod" checkbox. Then choose a folder from the Synchronize photos from menu. If you prefer to copy photos manually, deselect this checkbox.
· Click Next to go to the next screen. If you'd like to register your iPod at this time, click Register My iPod. Click Finish to end the setup process and open iTunes (you should see your iPod hanging out in the iTunes Source pane.
Hope this helps,

Thanks,
Prince

HI. I got a new ipod touch. At first it would show up as a camera when I plugged it in the usb port......and would not sync with itunes. I downloaded new version of itunes and everything synced fine. Now...


Hi,
Your iPod touch should not appear in my computer. Does it appear in iTunes? If so, then that is all that you need to sync. If iTunes does not open automatically, click on it to open it. you should see your iPod there. Hope that that helps.

Ipod wont show up on itunes


Your ipod has to be plugging into a high speed usb port, that's your problem. Don't use the usb ports on front of your computer, use the one's in the back. Those are typically high speed. If you have an older computer, you might not have high speed usb ports and you'll need to purchase an pci usb 2.0 adapter.

Once you get it connected to the computer and you sync with your library it will remove any songs that were previously on the ipod.

Ipod classic 80 GB wouldnt allow me to load music.. now it wont appear in itunes either


My classic won't sync at all. When I plug it into a USB port a screen comes up on my ipod saying "connected" then within seconds it's replaced by another screen that says "ejecting"

It works fine on my son's PC and my wifes Mac. Just not on mine. I have disabled the firewall. Tried all the various USB ports. I know cable is fine cause it works on other computers. I have latest in ITunes and have service pak 2 with XP. So needless to say I have tried everything I can think of to resolve this. HELP!!!!
