Apple ipod password mistake how is unlock the 30gb apple ipod


Hi bashamdbasha
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.
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.

I have a ipod touch that i locked because i could not remember passcode i have tried to restore itunes but now it will not even come on


hi there, when you mean it will not even come on, does that mean that the ipod touch won't come on or itunes. If the ipod touch, then you may need a apple expert to help you with that. If it's itunes, just keep entering bad passwords. After a few more tries, it will reset on it's own and should become unlocked.

My ipod is frozen


Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps you!

Hi,

Please follow these steps for unlocking your iPod;
Please plug in the I POD to the compuer using the USB cable as first, you have to enable showing hidden files and folders to do it;
Click start-> MY COMPUTER(On the compuer screen)

Go to "Tools", "Folder Options". Then click on the tab called "View", and under "Hidden Files and Folders", click "Show Hidden Files and Folders", click OK.

Now, plug your iPod to your computer. You will see your iPod in "My computer" as a removable drive. Open it by double clicking, go to "iPod_Control" folder ,then "Device" folder. You will see file named "_volumelocked", please delete it.

Eject your iPod. Then, restart your iPod, You can do this by holding down the center and menu button for at least 5-6 seconds. Your iPod screen will go black and then you will see a Apple logo.
After reboot, you will have no limitations about sound.

Once your iPod has rebooted, check and make sure that it worked. Simply go into "Settings", "Volume Limit". If it asks for a PIN, you did it WRONG. Retry the above procedure.

Please rate me if you are happy with the level of support provided in regards to your query.

How can i unlock my ipod after my lilttle brother changed it


Your question was cut off but I think you were about to say that your brother set the lock code. By plugging the iPod into a computer itunes should unlock it automatically. If it only unlocks on the computer, you will need to restore your ipod which will rid you of all your music. I hope you have back ups.
