    Isn't that what happens when you put the wrong password in 10 times? If you fat finger the password either 4 or 5 times it will disable for 1 minute. If you do it wrong again 5, minutes. And I assume the times increase dramatically for each wrong attempt.

    So I assume when you get to 10 tries you might be looking at a massive amount of time equating to "You've entered the wrong password 10 times, we're disabling it for ever" as was originally set in the options.

    OP you must know this...

    Happened to my niece, had to do a restore. Make sure you back up and transfer purchases first.

    That's sick. I would say a restore would clear that up.
    Unless you don't mind waiting :p

    Why does the screen say 5201731 minutes...and you put 5201799? :rolleyes:

    Anyway the only thing you can do is try to restore it...or wait almost ten years. Your call.

    Because it had been over an hour until he made the pic post.

    OP, restore it and it should be fixed.

    No, definitely not. If you haven't got a backup of your media, you're out of luck.

    You say your mac broke some time ago- does that mean you don't sync it anymore?

    Just 'cause plugging it into the last synced computer bypasses the p/w lock.

    Unless it was the hard drive that broke, your data is still ok. Don't give it away or lose it.

    its senuti:)

    or if you use windows then download sharepod or iDump and backup all your songs...

    or if you can't then wait patiently until it unlocks:D

    ^^^

    How do you use Senuti when the iPod is locked as the OP said? :confused:

    I hope you can't. It would be a risk factor for people who secure their files with the passcode lock. :cool:

    You can still sync in iTunes, at least my niece could. So I assume you should be able to use senuti.

    But presumably iTunes recognizes that this iPod has been synced to this system before, right? Where Senuti could be run on any system.
