Resetting the iPod's password

March 2017


If you forgot you Apple iPod's password there's a way to reset it!


Here's a way to reset the password of your iPod:
  • Plug in your iPod.
  • Wait for it to load completely.
  • Open MyComputer (or computer if on Vista). Make sure you can view hidden files.
  • Go to iPod_control.
  • Go to the folder named Device.
  • If your Apple iPod is locked, there will be a file named _locked . Rename the file to _unlocked.
  • Safely remove your iPod and it will be cleared.
