I think you should backup your music/videos to your PC before itunes not work or other emergency incidents, to prevent important data loss.

I recommend u Daniusoft iTransfer. many of my friends are using this product. it can help u to transfer music /videos from iPod/iPhone to your computer and backup them. then you dont have to worry about data loss.

and it also has the following features:
1. Convert videos to iPhone/iPod supported video formats automatically before transfer it to iPhone/iPod.
2. Synchronize iTunes libary with your iPod/iPhone.

Hope it helps! GOOD LUCKKKK!

I would suggest that as opposed to trying to enter a code into the ipod that you take it to your local police station and hand it in as someone must have lost it. If you hang onto it you are in fact stealing it.

I have an ipod touch 8gb that is disabled. it belongs to my daughters friend and i am trying to enable it. she lost the password


You can reset it using iTunes. Open iTunes, plug the iPod in using USB, then turn of the iPod, once it's off hold down the home and lock buttons for 10 seconds, then release the lock button while continuing to hold the home button. After a few seconds iTunes should detect the iPod. Then you should be able to restore the iPod without the code.

Ipod touch is disabled and wont let me put in my pass code to unlock it when i get to itunes!


If your iPod touch is locked by a 4-digit passcode, the only way to get past it is to force the unit into restore mode by doing the following:


1. Start iTunes and Plug the iPod touch in to your computer via the sync cable. This could be firewire and/or USB.


2. Hold the sleep/wake button(the button at the top) and the menu button(round button at the bottom) down at the same time. Keep them both pressed until you see the 'restore' screen (an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol) on the iPod touch. If the ipod turns off or shows the "Slide to power down", just wait and try again. It takes about 10 seconds. Once the restore screen shows, Release the buttons.


3. Windows should quickly "install driver software" for a few seconds. iTunes should now display the iPod touch, along with a message that the iPod touch is in recovery mode. Click the RESTORE button in iTunes to restore the iPod touch.


Please note that doing this will erase the contents of the iPod touch -- that's how the system is designed to work: a passcode lock is meant to protect the data on the iPod.

  2. Now, hit the button at the top of your iPod.
  3. Try logging in with the WRONG passcode many times. This will disable the iPod touch.

you will have to restore your ipod to factory default settings in itunes.
or you can jailbreak the ipod with software like quickpwn.

Here is how to restore your ipod in itunes.
You will need to put the itouch in DFU/Recovery mode to get it to connect.

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
Your iPod will reboot.
Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
You may see the screen go blank or not.
Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
Restore it and Your all set.

8GB iPod Touch Disabled


Thanks to everyone who provided solution inputs. I finally have my iPod back. The solution is: 1. Turn of your iPod. 2. While holding down the 'Home' button, connect to iTunes WARNING: Doing this will return your iPod back to original 'out of the box' settings and you will lose everything. On the bright side, you get a 'fresh' start and it will auto update to the most recent software version. Good luck!
