Hi,

if you use windows xp try this way:

1. Plug in ipod.
2. Open “My Computer”
3. Look for the removable device (which is your ipod).
4. Open the folder, search for this hidden file : _locked.
rename or remove(delete) this file.
5. Eject your ipod.

hope to be useful

Try restoring the software back to factory settings using Itunes. This should erase the code.

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.

Well, to make a long story short, I finally unlocked my ipod after perilous hours of invalid guesses. What did I do? I have a habit of making obvious passwords-I simply goofed this time. I used the last four digits of my mother's cellphone number! Yes, yes, silly me silly me. However, I was quite relieved when I finally unlocked it. Thanks! =)
