Have you tried holding the top and bottom button (of the four which surround the wheel) down at the same time for a few seconds?

or run the ipod update to wipe it? install latest update.

I need help connecting to itunes because my ipod was disabled and i dont remember my password


ipod touch ? if thats the case you have to plug it into your computer using the usb cable.. open itunes and click restore ( it is then up to you if you want to add a password after itunes is finished. ) if itunes dose not detect the ipod or you are having trouble restoring it then make sure you have the most resent itunes installed then hold down the home button and power button at the exact same time and keep holding them. you will hear a ding sound and ipod will turn off,keep holding the home button but leave go of the power button when you hear the ding sound.now keep holding the home button untill you hear another ding sound ( this is the ipod powering back up but screen will be blank ) you can now leave go of the home button ( screen will be blank ) but itunes will see the ipod and say "ipod detected in dfu mode,you must restore " click restore ( if you leave go of the home button before the ding sound you will see the apple logo...if you see the apple logo you have missed the chance to get into dfu mode so do the steps again .. dfu mode is the best way to restore any apple device

I have forgot my screen lock password? how can i unlock this code.


Try plugging it into the computer you usually use it with and open iTunes.
Then, after you disconnect the iPod from the computer, it won't be locked anymore. Then you should be able to reset your screen lock password.

If that does not work, then you'll need to restore your iPod. This will delete all the files on the nano, so you'll need to resync it from your computer afterwards.
You can restore the iPod by connecting it to your computer, opening iTunes, clicking on the name of your iPod, then click on "Restore".

There's more info about restoring your iPod here.


Hope this helps!

Hi..my itouch password screen is not coming..instead of that a screen comes with the pic of a power cord and a cd..it doesnt sync to pc as well as it is password protected and password cant be...


This happens some times when the soft ware crashes. It is not generally a problem with the ipod directionally. You just need to restore the ipod, and this will put a new version of the software on.

Once at the computer you will need itunes open and your ipod connected

1) Make sure you have the latest vertion of itunes downloading
you can check this by going to { HELP>CHECK FOR UPDATES}

2) On the ipod hold the sleep wake button at the top and the home button on the bottom at the same time until you see the apple logo

3) Once you see the apple logo - release the sleep/wake button but remain holding the home button

4) You will see an error message from your computer

5) click ok - Then the restore button - the restore will take about 15- 20 minutes

Note: if you have previously backed up the ipod it will prompt you to restore from back up in the restore process

6) re - sync2_bing.gif your content after the restore is complete

7) after sync disconnect and use

I hoped this helped-

** NOTE: If you get an error while restoring the ipod try and restore from another computer ***

Can't unlock ipod


This is going to sound really crappy but, the ONLY way you can unlock your iPod without your password is to restore it using iTunes on a computer.

Below, I have posted a step by step on restoring an iPod just in case you need the information. I do hope you don't have to loose any music over this. Again though it's the ONLY way without a password.
How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)
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.
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.

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.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Lost password


Sadly when you loose a password for an apple ipod you will have to connect the ipod to itunes and restore it. To do this connect the ipod to your computer and wait for it to show up in itunes. As soon as it shows up in itunes it will load to the summary page. You will want to click on the restore/update option and follow the on screen instruction. A restore is the only way to unlock it without the password. Hope this is helpful to you :)

Itouch unlock password


Hi,

unfortunately you will have to restore your ipod. Just connect it to your computer, and within itunes select the restore option on the ipod page.

The ipod should be able to be restored by the computer that last synced it.

Otherwise, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

I hope this helps,

Nathan.

Is there a way to override or reset the password on the iPod Nano


Unfortunately, if the password has been forgotten, you will have to "Restore" the iPod, which will erase all the songs and other files that are currently on there.

To update or restore iPod nano:
1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of
iTunes from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
2 Connect iPod nano to your computer.
3 In iTunes, select iPod nano in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.
The Version section tells you whether iPod nano is up to date or needs a newer version
of the software.
4 Click Update to install the latest version of the software.
5 If necessary, click Restore to restore iPod nano to its original settings (this erases all data
from iPod nano). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
