According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, 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.
Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. 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."

The only way to do that is plug your device into iTunes and restore it. You will lose all your data and apps and it'll get synced with your current library.

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 forget the unlock code for my 8gb ipod nano..what do i do?


Because of obvious concerns regarding ownership. We do not provide unlock codes or passwords to these types of devices.
you wouldn't be to happy if we provided a solution for someone to access your iPod that was just stolen from you.

However I can give you information on where you can get this. Apple support. They are the only ones that can help you because they are the only ones that can match up you personnel information with that specific iPod. There should be information in your manual about password recovery. If you don't have that just click the link below.
Hope it helps.

How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


See these instructions for unlocking the iPod Screen Lock if you don't know the combination.

  1. You can connect it to the first computer it was every synced with (this should be your friend's computer?) Open iTunes, then disconnect the iPod. It should now be unlocked.
  2. If you can't do that, then you can restore the iPod to factory default settings. Note that this will erase all music and data from the iPod, along with the Screen Lock password.
