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."

How can i unlock my ipod


To unlock it, connect 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 this method, you can restore your iPod to factory settings. Please
note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to iPod.

To restore your I-pod, do this:
1) Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software
may need to be downloaded to your computer.
2) Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that
came with your iPod. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
3) Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the
Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
4) Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt
iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. Use restore option 4.
