iPod Help!!!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Anyone know whats happened to my iPod nano ?

I was using my iPod as usual and put it back in my pocket when i was finished. Now i didnt use it for a couple of days, but when I turned it on again to use there is a little safe with a combination lock password on it. WTF :shocking:

I never put that one, hence the reason I dont know what the combination is. I didnt do it while I was drunk either or it would have been my bank pin number.

This happened to anyone else? or anyone know how to sort it out, I cant listen to my iPod :(

    its locked. unless you changed the original code, it should be somewhere in the handbook that came with it.

    thats the code that apple sets into all ipods so unless the OP has changed it - that code should work...

    Haha the other day I had to unlock some software on my phone and it asked for a PIN so I tried 1234 and it worked :cool:

    It's nearly always the default pin, so try it. If not, go to an apple store, they should help. But apple have a bad reputation for saying you need a new hard drive, charging you 5 times the price other sellers do, and then selling your old one on (and they'll have given you a refurbished one anyway). But that's Macs, so you can see what they say in the shop. Try 1234.

    That will work, i've got an Ipod touch and doing the whole jail break thing moving from one firmware to another, even previous is very easy + Nocks out anything that was on there before (settings)

    Does anyone here use an Olympus DM-10 / DM-20 digital voice recorder? They're like MP3 players but geared towards dictation and voice recognition (like Dragon). I had a few customers ring my helpdesk with problems that their Olympus have become locked. The only way out was to perform a hard reset by sticking a biro or straightened paperclip into the reset hole.

    I know that Creative Zen players have a reset hole as well. Same probably go with iPods too.

    On a slightly different note, various laptop manufacturers tend to password-protect their BIOS. Look in the manual though because they will state the code. On most computers I've come across, the password was 000000.
