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.

First thing to try is a reset

To reset your iPod:
  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
  • If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
  • If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

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!

  • Disable or Enable Disk Use on your iPod and then attempt to restore.
  • Try connecting your iPod to a different USB port and then attempt to restore.
  • Remove any third-party USB devices you have connected to your computer (it is not necessary to remove your keyboard or mouse).

This can happen even on expensive MP3 players. It has happened on my Sony MP3 player a few times.

As suggested let the batteries run out and then fully charge it and see if that fixes it.

If it does not go to the ur players website and see if they have more recent firmware for it. Double check that you can connect it to the PC perfectly fine and install the new firmware. It is quite possible a new firmware will fix the problem.

The battery is dead and needs to be revived or replaced if it is completely dead which most likely the case. It is clearly indicated by the iPod working only when a power supply is connected. It doesn't power up when not connected to a power supply because it doesn't get any power from the battery and the battery doesn't charge too.

I have had to do this ALL the time (obviously i'm not good with picking songs) all you have to is right click the song you want to delete and some options should show up on the left or right then click delete or you could drag the song into music off your ipod
