You need to restore first before you can proceed to syncing your device with iTunes. Follow the simple trick below to be able to proceed with restoring:

  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.

If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures on my tip (link below):

I forgot the passcode of apple ipod pls help me reset the passcode

The solution to your problem is to first connect your iPod to your computer. Let iTunes load (or open it) and navigate to your iPod's icon. You will need to hit the "Restore" option after backing up your music and data.

I forgot my passcode for ipod touch,how do break passcode with different computer with out losing any music saved in it

What most likely has happened is that you or someone was trying to access your iPod and tried to enter a passcode to get in. After a certain amount of tries, your iPod will disable itself. Here's how you can get it back.

Step 1: Turn on your computer, and connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod.

Step 2: Open up iTunes on your computer.

Step 3: In iTunes, go to the left side of your screen and scroll down, when you see your iPod, select it.

Step 4: You should now see on the right side of your screen some general iPod information. Scroll down to until you see a "Restore" button.

My ipod touch is disabled i forgot my passcode an i kept entering the wrong answer and it disabled

it may tell you how much time until you can try again. if it does, after that amount of time you will be able to try the passcode again. if, however you truly cant remember your passcode you will need to reset your iPod.

to do this you, unfortunately, will need to erase all the data on the iPod.

plug the iPod into the computer using the included USB cable. open iTunes. Hold down the home and power buttons at the same time until it shuts down and reboots. (if it doesn't open automatically) in the column on the left side of the window there is an icon showing your iPod's name. click on it then click on the button that says "restore iPod"

WARNING: this will erase all the content on the iPod (you can put it back on later)

it will ask you to confirm. hit "OK" and keep your iPod plugged in as it restores it to it original state. pick the language you prefer and then load your music back on the device.

I forgot my passcode!

There isn't any actual HACK type thing that will get you your account back but you can get your Passcode deciphered. There are only a certain number of buttons on the 360 controller that are able to be part of the Passcode. Write all the buttons down on a piece of paper and using and organized manner, find every single possibility and try each one until Voila!! You have deciphered your Passcode! I know this may seem like a long, boring, and tedious process but it is the only way, sorry. Hope my advice helped! =)

My Ipod is locked and my son forgot the code. How do I unlock it? It's an ipod nano A1236 and i have already tried a lot of codes and it dosen't work.

If you forgot your passcode for your Nano, then you will have to do a restore on your Nano which you'll have to do via iTunes; which will erase all data on your Nano, and restore all settings to factory default.
There is no other way to recover your passcode if you forgot it.
Once you run a recovery via iTunes you can re-add your music, etc.
