1) Open your iPod as a flash drive (you'll see it from the "My Computer").

2) Enable hidden folders and go into the folder "iPod control".

3) From within the "Device" folder, find the file titled "_locked" and rename it to "_unlocked".

Then just disconnect the thing and you should be on your way. If this doesn't work (I haven't tested this on any other iPods), deleting the file instead should work

Ipod disabled connect to itunes


Hi dimitri77
If you have forgotten the code, 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.

Hi basically my problem is my ipod wont do anything but show me an image of a usb wire with an arrow pointing to itunes logo (connect to itunes) when i do that itunes tells me to unlock the screen using...


I can help.
So with the device plugged into your PC, iTunes open, if it shows up in iTunes eject it, or cancel the prompt to unlock the screen.

Hold down the Power button for 3 seconds

Without releasing the power button, also hold the Home button for 10 seconds

Without releasing the home button, release the power button and keep holding the Home button for 20 seconds.

iTunes will detect an iPod in recovery mode, let off button and set down device and hit RESTORE in iTunes.

Hope it works!

How do i unlock ipod nano without code


Hello,

there are two options by which you can unblock the code on your 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.
Good luck.

Why is my iPod touch disabled for 5009752 minutes


The iPod touch is disabled when the incorrect unlock code is entered too many times. The time the iPod makes you wait increases each time an incorrect unlock code is entered.

There are two ways you should be able to unlock the iPod.
First, connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with. After iTunes recognizes the iPod, you should be able to enter your unlock code and unlock the iPod.

If the first method doesn't work or you don't remember your unlock code, then do this:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button and connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with.
3)Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears of the iPod's screen.
4)Wait for iTunes to recognize the iPod and then follow the onscreen directions to restore the iPod.

If neither method works, you will need to contact Apple Customer Support.

My ipod is lock how do i unlock it my sister put a code in and it wont unlock.


plug it into your computer.

open itunes.

click on your ipod in the bar on the left side of itunes.

click the button under the picture of your ipod that says "restore". this'll delete all your songs, but it'll unlock the code that your sis put on it, or at least, it should.

if it doesn't do it automatically, click the "Sync" button after the ipod has been restored, and you should be good to go with all your music, and without that code.
