My ipod is disabled and says connect to itunes but it also says itunes could not... so what do i do?


Step 1:
Apple's iPod Touch comes with a screen lock feature that allows you to set a four-digit security code to prevent others from using your iPod. Every time the iPod locks, you must enter this code to unlock the screen and access the user interface. Entering the wrong code too many times, or simply forgetting your security code, can cause you to be completely locked out. When this happens, you can quickly unlock your iPod Touch.

Connect your iPod Touch to the computer you usually sync it with. When you disconnect your iPod, it should now be unlocked. If Step 1 does not work, you have to restore your iPod Touch. Be advised that restoring your iPod Touch returns it to the original factory settings. This means that all your songs and files will be deleted and lost. You can resync your files to your iPod from iTunes once you have finished restoration. Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes before proceeding. In the left navigation panel in iTunes, select your iPod under the "Devices" section. Click the "Summary" tab and select "Restore." When iTunes prompts you about backing up your data, click "Back Up." In the following window, click "Restore." After the restore process completes, you will see the Apple logo on the screen of your iPod. Leave your iPod connected to your computer until it shows up again on the iTunes navigation panel. Your iPod touch is now unlocked. In iTunes you will be able to setup your iPod. Select the backup you made in the drop-down menu to restore your data files. Click "Continue" to finish the restoration. iTunes: Restoring iOS software

I have a gen 1 ipod touch which is disabled i have forgotten password and have a new computer with new verison of Itunes I have tried everything to enable ipod with no luck. Please help


Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the computer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is disabled/locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord.
Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. You can then go into the ipod and install a new pass code if you wish to.

Hope this helps,
Rob

I brought a previous owned ipod touch whzt do i do to get password changed and then apply my own password and new name ?


First of all download Itunes if you haven't done that already. Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the ccomputer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord.
Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. Now with iTunes still open look under devices click on the little ipod icon and then click on the name and you can add your name and press enter. Press the little triangle next to the name you added to disconnect fron iTunes and unplug the USB cable. As for adding a new passcode, go into your ipod and go to settings on your ipod and go to general and go to passcode. its only a 4 number combination.
I hope this helped.
Cheers Rob

.my ipod is disabled... how


Hi, just Hold down the home key and power key then plug the cord to your ipod to the computer then get on itunes and restore it

Also i am going to show you how to fix the semi-common ipod error that renders your Ipod unusable. Until now!


hings You'll Need:

* Computer w/ itunes
* Ipod touch or Ipone
* USB Cable for either device above.
* Your fingers (preferably your thumb)


Instructions


Start-up your computer and log in. Open itunes and leave it on the screen.


Now, hold down the lock button on the top of your device until the power off slider appears. Slide the arrow to shut off your ipod.


Now plug the USB cable into your computer. Make sure that the Ipod is not connected yet!


Hold down the stop button on the device and plug the USB cable into the device. Keep holding the stop button until you see the USB cable with an up arrow into an itunes symbol appear on your screen. This means that the connection to your computer was successful and that you are in recovery mode now.


Now click ok, and download and install the latest Operating System to your Ipod. You will lose all of your data on this device, so once you are done you have to re-download everything.


That's it. Now your device is working again, and it has the latest OS. It will be super quick, and all you have to do is restore your songs, apps, and other data and you have a good as new device!

Shows to connect to itunes on the screen


The ipod should let you do a restore in itunes with the computer that last synced the ipod. This is the only way to remove the passcode.

If it wont simply show up on the computer, plug the ipod in, hold the power button and then slide to power off. Press the power button, as soon as the apple logo appears press and hold both the top power button and the home button together until the orange triangle appears. This should put the iPhone into restore mode, open itunes and restore.

Seems its been locked for long enough.

You can remove the code by restoreing the ipod with itunes heres how


Restore
  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of 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 on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. 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 instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. 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.
