you may have to press "a" to start the hacking mini-game.

Each time you pick the right "code" it'll change in the upper left hand corner of the mini game. Just look at what color the text is and what order it shows up, pick that then look at the next one. After 3 correct code's you'll hack the datapad.

gman, if nothing is happening then you probably re-bound the "use/cover/sprint" key to something other than the "space" bar. In order to select one of the codes hit the space bar even if you rebound that function to something else. I had the same problem until I realized that it is a programming glitch that got overlooked.
