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 , including songs, videos, files, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod settings are restored to their original state.
Thank You

I cannot fix my ipod. too many passcode tries

If you've forgotten your passcode you'll have to reset it factory settings.
Plug iPod into your computer. Press and hold the Power Button and Home Button at the same time. It will power off, but don't let go. The apple symbol will come up, but still don't let go. You will then see the symbol to connect to iTunes.
Let go and follow steps to restore to factory settings.
The iPod return to life but you will need to download all you applications and music/videos

How to restore your ipod through itunes if its disabled and you dont remember your four digit passcode

You can reset it using iTunes. Open iTunes, plug the iPod in using USB, then turn of the iPod, once it's off hold down the home and lock buttons for 10 seconds, then release the lock button while continuing to hold the home button. After a few seconds iTunes should detect the iPod. Then you should be able to restore the iPod back to factory defaults. Even if you've forgotten the passcode.

Passcode on ipod forgotten

a reset is needed, whenever i preformed a reset on my iphone all my memory got deleted so i dont know if you want to try this. But press the home key ( the white square button) and the power switch at the same time and hold. If it works it should ask you to plug it into a computer with itunes. 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.
