Question about Apple iPod nano
Hi I recently received an Ipod Nano from a friend and I set it up and everything worked great. I just locked the screen and I can't unlock it. I called my friend and he said that he forgot the 4 digit combination. Does anyone have a quick fix for this?
From the link Noggin posted I was able to unlock my iPod: Here is some brief explanation: 1. Connect iPod to your computer, it have to be the same one you used the first time to sync your iPod. 2. open iTunes. 3. disconnect iPod from the computer 4. It should no longer be locked. 5. Change the 4 digit passcode If this doesn't work you will have to restore it back to factory settings: 1. Make a backup, the restore process will delete all your songs and files! 2. Connect your iPod to the computer and wait until your itunes detects it. 3. Click the restore button and follow the instructions. * I have never done the restore process so I cannot help you further...

I had the same problem and looked all over the internet and saw those same answers. Ok that won't work. This is what you need to do. I have Vista by the way.
1)connet ipod to computer
3)got to top of page, click on the store drop down menu and click "authorize computer"
4) next you need to go start menu and click on my computer
5) click on your ipod
6)open the folder that says ipod controls. (This is where I got lost- if you don't see it you need to switch it to classic view- go to organize and click the folder and search options. Under the general tab switch it to windows classic folders. then click the ipod contols option
7) you will see a folder that says "locked". right click it and change "locked" to "unlocked". Thats it.
pretty simple when you do it, you won't lose anything on your ipod. hope it helps you.

The only way to get rid of the password is to do a "Factory Reset" which will delete everything on the iPod. You hook it up to the computer and then when you select the iPod in the "source" panel of iTunes, select the "Summary" tab. There should be a "Restore" button. Just follow the instructions that iTunes gives you. For more detail, Apple support has a page that has every little thing on it, but this should be enough to get you through it.

You guys need to perform restore on the pc

If its the ipod Touch that is disabled, use Ziphone.
Use the Ziphone ipod touch and iphone jailbreak GUI to put the ipod in recovery mode. Then restore it using iTunes.
