If your ipod docks onto itunes but is still locked when you disconnect it, you do NOT have to reset it! all you have to do is follow these next few steps.(this is done on a windows xp system)

Go to my computer>devices with removable storage>ipod(-random letter goes here-:) go to the top.

click the button that says Tools and go down to Folder Options and click it.

a new window will apear that has three tabs. the middle one says Veiw. click that.

in the veiw tab there will be a Advanced Settings box. under Hidden Files and Folders, click the dot that says "show hidden files and folders" next to it.

close the small window and click a shadey file called ipod controll. if you dont see this reset the page by clicking th backward and then forward button up in the top left hand side.

then click a folder that says device. in that folder you will see a file that says "_locked" and it should have a small size (i.e. 1-7kb).

delete this file and undock your ipod from the computer through itunes.

when it restarts it will most likely be unlocked. if not, proceed with the other way to unlock your ipod above.


best of luck. i repair the worst of ipod senarios, and i know how frustrating they can be.

There are two major way to go about this
these are
Reset the iPod:


  • Toggle the Hold switch to on, then back to off (none of the red is showing).
  • Press and hold down the Menu and Select buttons (as shown in the picture) for 6-10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.


  • For many problems, you may have to do this several times. The iPod may be hung up on several things so you have to tell it: "Reset that. Now reset this. Yes, reset that too" and etc.


Restore the iPod:
Warning: When you restore and iPod, you...

... delete everything on it (songs, pictures, movies, files, games, firmware, etc.) Hey! That means any stuff that's on the iPod, but not in the iTunes library, will be lost. After deleting everything, iTunes reloads the iPod software with a fresh copy (referred to as "factory settings").
Using iTunes
When the iPod is connected, select it in the Source list in iTunes. Under the Summary tab, there is a button named "Restore." Click it. Select the restore option you want then sit back. A progress bar will show you the status of the restore. When it's done, you'll see a message like "Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore." Now the iPod will show a progress bar. Do not disconnect during this part. When it's done, the iTunes Setup Assistant will prompt you to name and configure the iPod.

Using iPod Updater
If you have a problem which means that the iPod is not showing up in iTunes, follow these steps.
if it doesn't work, you have to call Apple or send it to a technician

    i would like you to know that tampering with the system files and configuration could void your warranty with apple and apple has a very high security setting which could end up damaging your device if the slightest thing goes wrong.
    It is best you do the normal procedures which apple would not dispute with.

IPOD A1136 and I want to connect to computer to delete pics & mp3


You need a USB cable that is made for the ipod. It can be purchased on e-bay. Thay plugs into the bottom of the ipod, and into a 2.0 usb port on your computer. Afere it is connecter, you computer and i-Tunes will take over for you, just follow the instructions. If you dont have itunes installed, go to www.apple/support.com and download

I want to know which generation is the Ipod 30G model A1136, thanks


There are two 5th gen iPods, A1136 model is the older 2005 model, not the later 2006 model.

Here is Apples link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#ipodfifth2 which will show the differences, but not by model number. The reason I know this model number is the first 5th gen 2005 is because I have one. Also older 2005 should have '2005' engraved on rear.

Apple iPod Model A1136, 30 GB.


First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
