Trying restarting your iPod (by holding down the menu and center button at the same time until you get the Apple logo), then plugging it back into the computer. iTunes should recognize it then. I had the same problem recently and that solved it.

Unfortunately, the only easy and reliable way to reset the passcode on an iPod touch or other iOS device is to perform a complete restore of the device, which will wipe everything on it. Connecting your iPod touch to your original iTunes library will reset any disabled passcode counter, allowing you to make additional passcode attempts, but it will not bypass the passcode.

The good news, however, is that as long as you have a backup of your iPod touch in iTunes or iCloud, you can restore that backup onto your device after you've erased it, thereby allowing you to basically pick up where you left off. Restoring from backup will recover all of your data and settings except for the device passcode, which you will be prompted to re-enter. You may also need to re-enter some passwords for things like e-mail accounts or Wi-Fi networks as these are secured by the device passcode, and thereby lost if you can't remember your original passcode.

Note that even if you haven't already made a recent backup of your device, you can still make one even with the device locked provided you still have your primary iTunes library available-usually the iTunes library and computer that you originally setup your iPod touch with. To do this, simply plug in your iPod touch, right-click on it in the Devices listing in iTunes, and choose the Back Up option from the context menu that appears.

How dow I clear and remove restrictions passcode I dont know what the passcode is and have 2 failed attempts


You can reset it using iTunes. Open iTunes, plug the iPod in using USB, then turn of the iPod, once it's off hold down the home and lock buttons for 10 seconds, then release the lock button while continuing to hold the home button. After a few seconds iTunes should detect the iPod. Then you should be able to restore the iPod back to factory defaults. Even if you forgot the password.

How can i unlock my ipod touch? i forgot my passcode.


The only thing that could make your iPod touch work again is to put it to DFU mode and restore. I have a full instruction about that to guide you step by step, making sure that you're doing the right thing.

However, that process will wipe out all the data from your iPod, you won't even be able to sync or create a back-up because iTunes does not recognize any iPod that is passcode-locked.

That is also why you need to put your iPod to DFU mode first, so that iTunes can recognize it, to by-pass the fact that it is passcode-locked. And, once its in DFU mode, the only thing that you'll be able to do is to restore, nothing else. And you have no other choice.

Ipod touch passcode


Do you see in an icon for your ipod touch on the left hand panel of iTunes? It should be listed under "devices". you need to click that first.
Then go to the Summary tab. There is a "restore" button under the Version section. This will restore your iPod to factory defaults. You will loose all the custom data, and will have to re-sync it.

Using the Restore function for your iPod touch is part of standard troubleshooting procedure. Restoring your device will erase all data from your iPod touch, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod touch settings are restored to their factory condition.
Whenever you restore your iPod touch, Apple highly recommends that you perform a sync prior to restoring in order to back up any changes since your last sync. If you have movie rentals on the device, see this document before restoring.
Use the following steps to restore your iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (As long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your iPod touch).
Once the restore process has completed the iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up
