Hey jenipoo,

With most models, users may typically change the device name of their iPod by changing it through iTunes.

You would first need to start iTunes with your iPod connected to your computer. Once iTunes is up and running, you'll probably want to use your computer's mouse to highlight the device. After waiting a couple of seconds, you should be able to click once on the current device name to open "edit mode," which allows you type in the desired name. Simply hit the "Enter" key once you've typed in the new name, and you should be set.

Alternatively, you can right-click on the name of the device on Windows-based PC's to open a dialogue box with a "Rename" option. Simply left-click on the "Rename" option, and again you should be able to type the device name of your choosing.

Please keep in mind that this may not apply to every iPod model, so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

I have a 8g ipod nano model number a1199 and i got it awhile back and i lost it. recently i found it and forgot the password. is there anyway i could reset the whole ipod... or whatelce could i do?


The latest iPod Nano includes a locking feature, which allow users to set a four-digit combination to keep intruders from using the device. However, if you find that you forget what code you set on your iPod, you will need an alternate way of unlocking your iPod Nano. Once the device has been successfully unlocked, you can continue listening to music on it.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC. Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal features again. Hope it helps.

Unfortunately, you are going to have to restore your iPod, but this is not an "all is lost scenario. As long as you have already previously backed up your iPod via a previous sync, you should be ok.
To restore your iPod is simple:
* Be sure you restore your iPod on the same computer or notebook that your previous iPod backup files or stored.

* Now, make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes.
• Be sure your iPod is correctly connected to computer or notebook .

• Finally, in the left column under Devices, click on your iPod, then click on Restore in the Summary tab.

* Allow the process to complete and your iPod will be restore to its original factory default settings.

* Now simply sync your iPod with iTunes and this is where your last sync now comes into play.

When you sync after the recovery, iTunes will look for your iPod's previous backup and per your OK, will restore your most recent backup to your iPod.

This time, when you set your passcode... Please make sure to write it down somewhere or on something, that is easily accessible and one you won't soon forget.zmhf79cfr6+udyusgogms8nf78nta+etfx1u7mmv76wfjaeraahnhckf3xogaaach5baeaab8alaaaaaasabiaaaxc4cekummwy0pobicindfjklkwxbffb8eutbsiqtlohh7pq3ognbajiserqsy9nc4jkjdqjbngpehwzdoeh0izycykbe1haqaklaqfxaihebecbw8wgqkzew4oew8hhagiynt7cxabawmbmromj5gumaczma+cgaclawyhmqwdea+ocazlgwiof5kxdgibhn4iehuughaqdnv1dsuafbulsh0alakvcralcgbahxiydr0hhptxhgcddrhbhwgybhqes0cefayyucndfqzetgyv6tw4sqtamia9dr9caaa7

Our ipod nano is locked and we cant figure out the code


1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
2. Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal.
3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.

    Cant load music on ipod nano


    Did you perform a software upgrade on you NANo before this happened? The latest firmware is supposedly having a ton of bugs. The simplest resolution for this is to connect your Nano to your PC , open iTunes and use the restore option to restore the device to the previously installed firmware. Hopefully this will resolve the issue. Post back if its not fixed so that we can try something else.
