That is unfortunate there is really little you can do in the way of forgetting your password. You can temporarily unlock it, but if you cant remember it you will end up having to reset it to factory settings and lose all the data/music that is on the ipod. But you can before restoring it backup your library file. But on some generations of ipod nanos it will save the password. So lets get started.
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. 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 the 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 can't remember the current combination, the only way to clear it and enter a new one is to restore the iPod software.

If you need further assistance or explanation of the steps listed above please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.-Midwest-Tek

Sreen is locked on apple ipod 8gb


Do a factory reset. Probably you'll lose all your files. Bad Luck. Next time copy your passwords to a notebook and keep it in a safe place.

How to unlock i pod that i forgot the possword


Hi michelle
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, 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.

How can i unlock my ipod nano cause i forgot the password


Hi,
If you can’t remember the current combination, the only way to clear it and enter a new one is to restore the iPod nano software.
You can use iTunes to update or restore iPod software.
If you choose to restore, all data is erased from iPod nano, including songs, videos, files, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod nano settings are restored to their original state.
Thank You

I have a black 8gb ipod nano and when I sync previous songs


this is what you will do, when you sync it again stop the automatic sync the click on your player on the itunes window to see its details, you will see 3 or 4 checkboxes and check manually add music or songs and ucncheck if there is any, the box that says automatically sync music, then click sync, it will start syncing again the disconnect. add songs only to the folder where itunes have got the songs so that next time you sync the ipod the songs previously added wont be erased.

We have a black ipod 8GB and haven't used it in a long time because we got iphones the last thing I did to it was just put games on it for my 4 yr. Old and I changed the password I hooked it up to our imac...


Warning, this deletes your songs and videos but will make the ipod work again Make sure your Ipod touch is connected to the computer with the usb cable when doing this. Press the HOME button and the SLEEP/WAKE button at the same time and hold them down. The power off screen may come on but disregard it When the apple logo pops up on the screen release just the SLEEP/WAKE button and continue to hold the HOME button.After several seconds the connect to itunes image will come up. You can release the button and continue Now start itunes. Your device should be recognized as in restore mode and you now just have to click restore. It may take a few minutes but your ipod should be back to factory condition and fully functional. GOOD LUCK

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.

Forgot password on my itouch


If you just plug your iPod into the computer, it should work fine. I forgot my password once, and I plugged it in, and it worked and didn't take off the songs. As long as you plug it into the computer you put songs onto the iPod from, it shouldn't be a problem.
