Hello,

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.

My ipod has been locked and i dont know the password


Ok so, your ipods locked up and you have no idea what 4 digit passcode is. So i know the default is 0000 if that fails, then there could be 999,999,999 combinations. if you dont wanna be sitting there all day trying different combinations then, plug your ipod into the pc YOU SET IT UP WITH FOR THE VERY 1ST TIME, the primary pc. if you no longer have access to this then you can do a full restore of ipod. hope this helped!

Note: If it doesn't appear and you have iTunes Installed, make sure "disk use" is enabled.

Ipod nano lock forgot password


First, try to restore using iTunes. If this doesn't work, place your iPod in disk mode (hold the menu and center buttons down togther) and as soon as you see the Apple symbol come up hold the center and play (bottom) buttons down together until you see a check mark (disk mode). It may take a few trys.

Now connect your iPod to your computer. Go to my computer and right click the drive associate with your iPod (for example F: ) and scroll down to FORMAT. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - CHOOSE FAT32 and then check the "Quick Format" box. After you do this then use iTunes to Restore your iPods another time.
