Hello

The first thing you want to do is to make sure you have iTunes installed. This works even if your PC is not the primary PC for syncing your iPod.

To unlock your iPod screen first plug in your iPod and go to: My Computer. Look for the your iPod device and click on it. The next thing you want to do is to look for the hidden file named: _locked. You can do two things: rename this folder, or just delete the file. (I recommend renaming it)

Eject your iPod safely and you are all set! All your music, photos, and video on your iPod will stay intact. I suggest you go to your iPod combination now and change it to something you will always remember. I hope this helped!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: i locked my ipod nano and cant remember the code

Hi,

You have to restore it. Plug it into your computer and under the devices tab click your ipod and click the restore button under the summary tab. This unfortunetly will wipe your ipod clean but if you've synced it recently there will be a backup saved. After its finished being restored sync it and itunes will ask if you wanna use your backup. click yes and everything will be the same as it was before you forgot your passcode.

Hope this helped!
Please refer back for further help!
Thanks.

Cant unlock my ipod nano.


Hi

To unlock your ipod you'll need to connect it with the pc it is last synced to. After connecting it open itunes and from the main screen click on restore, it will unlock your ipod.

Remember after restoring you'll lose the menu settings and other settings saved on your ipod however no data will be deleted from the ipod.

Please accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

I locked my ipod and forgot the code


If you have a third gen ipod nano and you locked the screen lock and forgot the code, well what you do is you hook your ipod to your PC,laptop ect. and disconnect it. It should be unlocked. But if you lock it you have to do that over again to unlock it.

Ipod security code


There is only one way - and it will erase all your songs:

If you lock your iPod nano screen and can’t unlock it
Normally, if you can connect your iPod nano to the computer it is authorized to work
with, your iPod nano automatically unlocks. If the computer authorized to work with
your iPod nano is unavailable, you can connect iPod nano to another computer and
use iPod Updater to restore your iPod software. See the next section for more
information.
If you want to change the screen lock combination and you can’t remember the
current combination, you must restore the iPod software, and then set a new
combination.
Updating and Restoring iPod Software
You can use iPod Updater to update or restore your iPod software. Apple periodically
updates iPod software to improve performance or add features. It is recommended that
you update your iPod nano to use the latest software. You can also restore the software,
which puts iPod nano back in its original state.
â If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
â If you choose to restore, all data is erased from your iPod nano, including songs, files,
contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod nano settings are
restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod nano with the latest software:
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
has the latest software for all models of iPod.
2 Double-click the software installation file and follow the onscreen instructions to install
the iPod update.
3 Connect iPod nano to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
opens.
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software.
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t recognize that iPod nano is
connected to your computer, reset iPod nano (see page 45).
If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you
can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you
installed the software from the iPod CD.
