Re: Pin code lock of the sound limit
If you cant find the code you can use restore to reset the device into its original state
You have to use iTunes on your pc and restore the ipod
Restore Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.
How to restore your iPod: For Windows:
1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes. 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer. 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in theSummary tab of the main iTunes windows. 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software.
The 4 possible restore options are:
Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore. 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off. 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

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.
First copied all my songs to my computer. Then formatted the player (right click on player icon and hit 'format'). Finally, to double sure, hit the 'reset' button on the player. There is small pin-hole opening next to the USB port and used a paper-clip to hit the reset button. Copied my songs back onto the player. Player is back to normal.i hope this will be helpfull to you. please don't forget to vote me . GOODLUCK................

Hello Karim... If you had the Zen Touch 20 Gb like I just have right now, try to reset it. Here's how: Set the POWER/ LOCK SWITCH to the left, so the player is locked (make sure it was on). You can see a small hole in the leftmost side, insert a hair pin or a thin wire to the slot and push gently (be sure it is the hole in the left side, the hole in the right is the microphone). After you'd done that, it would reset. Turn it on again, and hope that solve your problem.
Another thing to do is to connect your player to a computer and browse the file. Don't do anything, just open browse the files. Then after awhile, plug it off from the computer... I haven't tried this, but this one is posted on one of the thread, and solved the unresponsive touch pad or keys.
