I forgot my unlock code for my Ipod touch and really need a default code.


There is not a default code to unlock any locked iPod. This would defeat the purpose of the iPod's security.

You can unlock the iPod touch by putting the iPod touch into recovery mode, connecting the iPod to the computer it was last synced with, and then restoring the iPod.

To do this:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button and plug the iPod into the computer it was last synced with.
3) Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears on the iPod's screen.
4) Start up iTunes and after it recognizes that the iPod is in recovery mode, follow the on screen instructions to restore the iPod.

Note: This may cause you to lose some of the data stored on the iPod.

If this doesn't work, call Apple Customer Support.

Remove security code


Try resetting the ipod, this usually works. As follows: How to reset iPod To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: iPod nano (3rd generation) iPod classic iPod (5th generation) iPod nano (2nd generation) iPod nano iPod with color display (iPod photo) iPod (Click Wheel) iPod mini iPod mini (2nd generation) Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center. If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector) Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button. When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on. Good luck, and I hope this helps.

Forgotten password


Hello All!

I had the same problem, my officemate came to me and asked formy help, her nephew tinkered on her ipod nano and set the passcode, and did not remember what it was.

the ipod nano can be unlocked when connected to the computer with itunes but, if you want to change the passcode to a new one it will ask for the old code which i dont have. even if you reset all the settings to factory default setting it will not reset.

this is a little hard for some of you to follow, but, to totally remove the unknown old code this is what i've done:
first, sync your music to your PC so that you have a backup of all your music. Second, make sure enable disk use is checked. third, format your IPOD. This sounds nut but this did the trick.

after doing this, check if you can set a new passcode to the screen lock, you should be able to do it. and please dont forget the new passcode. I hope this helps.

Ipod lock code


If you can't remember your lock code on your Nano, you will have to restore the Nano via iTunes, there is no other way around this, as there is no way to recover your lock code.
Restoring your Nano will erase everything on the player, and restore it to factory defaults, after this is done you can restore all your files and settings to your Nano.
Here is instructions on resoring your Nano in case you aren't sure how.

I need to sync my nano to my mac, not my nephew's PC!


Well, if your nephew's computer is a Windows, that means you will have to restore your ipod back to factory settings to get it to work with your computer. Open itunes to the main ipod page. It should tell you that a Windows ipod has been detected in itunes and you will need to restore your ipod in order for it to work with your computer. Click ok on that message, or if that message does not appear, click restore on the ipod page. Then it should tell you that all of your information will be deleted. Click ok if you have all of the music backed up and after it restores, it should be working normally.

Then click "ipod control" then "Device" and delete the file that says "_lock" or something on that line. If you any questions email me at wolffa@mhs-pa.org
