Just what was the message asking for password say?
With Restrictions you can prevent suers for doing some task like purchasing items. See:
If you forgot your Restrictions passcode or do no know it if one somehow got assigned, then:
- Restore from a backup that was make before you added the Restrictions passcode. If you restore from a backup made with the Restrictions passcode the Restrictions passcode is also restored.
- Restore to factory settings/new iPod.
- If you are up to it see:
If you just restore from a backup that has the passcode the passcode is also restored.
Well there lies the problem, I cannot connect to a computer to do that, and because I do not remember the password I cannot do it via the iPod. I have tried two different computers now and both freeze about 10 seconds after plugging in the iPod. Also not sure if this is relevant but I've had this iPod sense a few months after it first came out so it has years on it. But it's still in great condition excluding the button on the top being jammed. Also I don't think I ever backed up to the cloud.
