    What do i do if i forgot my four digit combonation for my nano ipod

    There are basically three ways to unlock the Screen Lock on your iPod:
    1. The most obvious and will not work for most people . Simply enter the 4 digit combination/pass code at Extras > Screen Lock.
    2. Connect your iPod to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.
    3. The next line number 4 is very effective....note this (it will delete-erase-zapped all files)
    4. Use this final way only if the first two options do not work for you because it is a destructive process.
      Everything on your iPod will be erased.
      This should not be a problem if you have all of your songs, videos, and other media stored in iTunes and you can synchronize once again after getting the iPod unlocked. Besides, if you don’t unlock your iPod it’s useless right? Learn how to Restore your iPod using the instructions from Apple’s site.
    5. Hope this is helpful

    Ipod nano lock forgot password

    First, try to restore using iTunes. If this doesn't work, place your iPod in disk mode (hold the menu and center buttons down togther) and as soon as you see the Apple symbol come up hold the center and play (bottom) buttons down together until you see a check mark (disk mode). It may take a few trys.

    Now connect your iPod to your computer. Go to my computer and right click the drive associate with your iPod (for example F: ) and scroll down to FORMAT. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - CHOOSE FAT32 and then check the "Quick Format" box. After you do this then use iTunes to Restore your iPods another time.
