Once you connect to itunes on your computer it will automatically unlock your ipod and you can either set a new code or turn it off

I have forgot my ipods 4 didgit ncode and inne to fing a way to unlock it

You will have to put the iPod into DFU mode - Then plug into iTunes and click the restore button.
To access DFU mode, reset the iPod with MENU+SELECT(middle button), then press and hold BACK(rewind)+PLAY. A picture of the dock connector should appear.
Then plug into iTunes and click the restore button.
Hope this helps.

How to unlock if you fogot your locking number

The only way that I know of unlocking an iPod is to use iTunes and RESTORE the iPod. If this is your iPod and you do a restore and re-sync you should not loose anything you had.

Please note I do not condone use of this information for "FOUND" or stolen iPods.

Forgot password for ipodtouch

There are really two ways to unlock your locked ipod2_bing.gif if you forget the code.

1. First, connect your iPod to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes2_bing.gif. Open the iTunes and then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.

2. Restore your ipod, CAUTION! this will erase all of your songs and personal data.

I bought an apple i-pod used my sister locked it and i don't know the code

Hi There
Easy to fix. Connect the ipod to iTunes via USB. In iTunes on the iPods main page click the Restore button and chose the bottom most option (if it gives you any). Follow the rest of the instructions and once you've resynced the ipod it will be password unlocked.

All the best

Ipod Nano can't unlock volume lock

From my experience with iPods, the only way to get rid of lock codes that you can't remember is to do a restore on your iPod. This will result in all data being removed from it however. But if you have a backup on your computer of everything you have, then you should be fine. You will have to reload all your music and stuff.

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.

Hi jak 1116,

I'm not sure what you mean by code... Visit Apple's website and go to their Discussions area, they have help for all things iPod related there.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!
