There are really two ways to unlock your locked ipod if you forget the code.

1. First, connect your iPod to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes and then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.

2. Restore your ipod, CAUTION! this will erase all of your songs and personal data.

Somebody copy songs to my ipod nano /and the songs appear on the compter when you plug it in but it willnot down load on my ipod nano


Sounds like they did not use a iTunes to copy the songs to the iPod.
iPods/Phones/Pads, etc require iTunes to create a sort of file that tells the iPod where the music file is located at on the mp3 player.
So if they just plugged it in via usb and drag and dropped mp3 files over then there is no file to tell the iPod where they are.
So you'll need to drag those music files off of your iPod back onto a computer and then use iTunes to import the songs into iTunes and sync your iTunes library to your iPod.

I locked the screen lock and i dont remember the combnation. how do you unlock it reset it


Hello,

there are two options by which you can unblock the ipod. Follow any of the procedures tomorrow.
Unlock with the Primary Computer
  1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
  2. Open itunes and sync the iPod as normal.
  3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.
Unlock by Restoring
  1. Restore the iPod to factory settings if you do not have access to your primary computer. This erases all of the data you have stored on the iPod.
  2. Plug your iPod into the new computer you want to be the primary computer. Open iTunes and click on the "Restore" button.
  3. Reload your data, if it is available and sync your iPod. Remove it following normal procedures.
or

Is this your first time using the iPod since buying this from ebay? There are two ways on how you can do this:
1. By connecting it to the primary computer and syncing it with iTunes. Please take note that this needs to be the primary computer you have connected it with.
2. If it is not, then your final resort would be to do a factory reset of the iPod. This will delete all files, music etc on your iPod and will restore it to factory default. You need to use the iPod updater to reset it.
Good luck.

Broken ipod, broken heart


Am soooo sorry 2 hear dat ya broke ya ipod.. but try dese it mite help ya access ya ipod..

But am not sure if its a screen lock or passcode lock..
If screen lock den basic reset n restart should work

but if its passcode den u must restore your iPod software from iTunes.
See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software”

Dont restore from backup if you have a passcode that you cant remeber.

You have to restore your ipod as a "new" device & then re-sync your content. Restoring from a backup will merely restore the lock.

But make sure before ya restore ya iPod u have a backup of d songs data n etc in d comp or els wer..

Hope it wors out 4 ya:)

Ipod nano security code


Try this:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

How to transfer library from lime wire to ipod


I myself have a 4gb iPod Mini, so i can't transfer my full library to my iPod, at least until i get a Classic. But in your case, you need to set up your iPod ot let you manually manage your music, and setting your iPod to only sync sonts that are checked in your library. When you manually manage your music you choose the music you want on it by Playlist, so the LimeWire playlist (that should have already been set up with the first song you downloaded from the program) will need to be checked in the "Playlists" box under the "Music" tab the next time you sync it.
Hope that helps!
