I'm sorry, I do not understand your question. Increase volume of what? What is asking for a password?


the volume control goes only to a level of sound. If you are in an airplane, I cannot hear so I need to increase the volume and all of a sudden on the screen, it says: password ( supposively some password with numbers only) I have never had any password on the ipod.

So how do I restore? Download everything to the computer reboot and then pass everything back to the ipod?

I am not to literate on this. I am not young and savvy, just starting my golden years. So, any explanation should be simple.

Thank you and have a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Sounds like volume control is enabled. If you go into settings, you should see a toggle which mentions maximum volume. If you do not know the password, you'll need to restore the iPod.

To get the music off the iPod, use this program. Plug the iPod in and a dialog box should pop up. You'll want to hit the button that says something along the lines of "quick restore". After this, follow any instructions that the program gives you. When it is finished, your music should be transferred to iTunes.

Next, plug your iPod into iTunes; you should see the iPod appear in the main iTunes window. Inside this window, there should be a button that says "Restore". Click this, and iTunes will nuke all previous data on the iPod- including the passcode for volume control.
