You dont need an itunes account, but you need the itunes program installed in your pc.
then:

  • Connect your IPOD Touch to iTunes
  • Press or Hold the power and home keys 10 seconds.
  • Screen goes black, now release the power button
  • Make sure you do not release the Home key until your iTunes says "We have detected an itouch in recovery mode."
  • After this its simple all you got to do is a simple restore using your iTunes

SOURCE: the ipod touch won't let mei into my music page?

Hi,
There is no method to recover the password or bypass it. Apple very clearly says this in their manual. Now that we have this cleared.

You will need to restore the ipod. I know this sucks but unfortunately this is the only way to start using it again.

To restore iPod.

1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes. 2 Connect iPod touch to your computer. 3. Open iTunes. It will show up as a device. 4. Select iPod touch in the iTunes sidebar and click the Summary tab. You will see the details of your device along with link to restore ipod.

click this 'Restore' button. You will get a warning that it will erase all data, settings and music. Click Yes. Follow onscreen instructions.
It can take you upto 4 hours to restore your ipod again depending on the size of your data.

Use the cable included with your iPod touch to connect the device with your computer. Plug the fat end into your iPod touch and the longer end into your computer.

SOURCE: i forgot my password to my 8gb ipod touch

Hello.
Welcome to Fixya Community.

You need to restore it with iTunes, but you can't restore an iPod While its Locked With a password, well in order to Force it to Restore you shud put it on Recovery Mode.
Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into iTunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.
and that will reset you configuration including Your Password.
Thank you For Using Fixya.
Good Luck.

Login my itunes account


Do you mean the password for your iPod or your apple account? If it's your apple account you can go through apple's website and retrieve your username and/or reset your password
My Apple ID

If it's your iPod password you forgot, then unfortunately you will need to reset your device and delete everything on it to get it working again. Here's a link to do just that:

Is there any way to get music off of a first generation Ipod w/ the click wheel. I had the Ipod linked to my wife's Itunes, now we are getting divorced. I got a new Ipod touch and want to retrieve


Rob Pegoraro had a write-up on how to do this in the Washington Post a number of years ago: (click here)

Beware, if you never upgraded your songs to be DRM free and you don't know the username and password for the iTunes account, then these songs that you're recovering will be unplayable.

Forgot passcode


If you forgot your iPod Touch password the only solution is to wipe and restore your last backup.

Apple Knowledge Base Regarding lost passwords

Instructions from Apple Support Document (Page 110)
Restore iPod touch from a backup:
  1. Connect iPod touch to the computer you normally sync with.
  2. In iTunes, select iPod touch in the sidebar and click the Summary tab.
  3. Click Restore to reinstall the iPod touch software, restore its default settings, and delete data stored on iPod touch. In iTunes, you can also restore from a backup without deleting data stored on iPod touch.

I forgot my password and i got a new computer? how do i restore it now?


Does it show up in iTunes AT all? If so, you attempted to restore it yet? The only way to get beyond the password without having the code is to restore in iTunes.

If your having difficulties getting the iPod to connected to your computer try this.
Connect your USB cable to your USB port on your computer without having the iPod connected. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.

Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.
Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message: iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes.

If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPod and repeat steps 3-6.
Because you must restore the iPod touch, iTunes will not recover data from the device, but if it was previously synced on the same computer and the same user account, it should restore a backup (if available)
