My 9 year old put a pin code on my iPod then forgot the code. I am unable to use it or guess any more combinations. Please help


Hi Rose
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, you can unlock the Ipod by doing the following:
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.
If you can't unlock Ipod using either (the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs). . . 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.
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.

I have a 2gb ipod nanao that i own but a coupledays ago i locked it by accident and it was given to me by a friend that forgot the password to so i need an unlock for the ipod


I think you are talking about the 4 digit combination lock.

To unlock your ipod connect your it to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application and let it recognise that your iPod is plugged in, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked. Now reset the pass-code.

If this doesn't work you will have to restore your iPod to factory settings using iTunes, this will wipe all the music form the ipod but u will be able to put this back on later.

To do this open itunes and plug in your iPod then select your ipod and click restore. This process will take a few minutes and the iPod must remain connected at all times until it has finished. When done itunes will ask you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences.
