It depends on the severity and the settings you have given the iPod... Here's the full explanation. I would recommend reading the second paragraph first, but the solution if you really forgot your password is in the first paragraph.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present. Refer to "Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software."

"If you enter the wrong passcode too many times, you'll see a message that says "iPhone is disabled" and to try again later. If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It  can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode."

Can not connect to the internet with my new itouch. Have tried all the resets. My password (which is correct) does not seem to work. Says unable to join network. The network is working fine with 2 other...


What kind of wireless password do you have? WEP or WPA? This makes a difference as Apple devices use a different algorithm with the WEP encryption that the rest of the world. If WEP, put a '#' in front and use the hexadecimal version of the password.

My Itouch (1st Gen) has recently stopped working on all USB cables, so now the only way i could charge it was an Ihome rip off. But now, my itouch is disabed and to try again in 5000000 minutes.


ok so u have to do a FULL MASTER RESET. Turn off the ipod and then once its off hold down the Home button (circle button at bottom) This will put the apple icon on the screen. Once that appears immediately plug in a USB cord. This should bypass the disable and passwords and then send you straight to resetting the ipod. Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK

My ipod is disabled


While your itouch is connected to your computer, and itunes is open, press and hold the sleep/off button (the one on the top of the itouch) until the slider comes up on the screen. Slide the slider to turn off the itouch. Now, press and hold the home button (the one right below the screen) and at the same time, press the off/sleep button again. Hold both until you see your itunes page bring up a "restore" feature. Unfortunately, when restoring, you will lose all data (songs, etc..) Hopefully, you have this data in itunes and can easily download it back onto your itouch. This is the only thing that works. Sucks that you lose everything, but at least your itouch will once again work....

Itouch locked and harddrive crashed


Hello pegharding!

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.

Wifi connection & itouch


I finally discovered the problem. I have a Linksys wireless
router, so when I tried to log on with my iTouch, I got the
message "Unable to join network "my network name" when
I typed in my password. One day, after many trys, I tried
typing in the network security key for my router, and Voila,
it worked. For some unknown reason (to me), the iTouch
recognizes the the network security key as the password.
