Disabled ipod touch showing as unknown device on windows

I got a first generation ipod touch the other day and I turned it on and it said " Disabled Connect to iTunes". So I connected it to the computer and it shows the ipod as an unknown device. I went to iTunes to see if it was shown in there and it didn't pull it up either. I put into to restore mode and it still showed up as unknown device and not pulled up in iTunes. Please Help!

Ipod is disabled, how do i restart it ?


The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer.

It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen.

If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled.
To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer.

Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window.

Click the "Restore" button.

If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup.

If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings.

Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device.

iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

or
A hard reset restores your iPod Touch to its original factory settings.
This is useful when your iPod Touch is disabled and won't turn on or off, but all your data is erased.

Luckily, you can restore your data with iTunes after you've performed the reset.
Once you've performed the reset, your iPod is wiped clean and iTunes prompts you to restore the settings from your last sync.

Plug the iPod into your computer and wait at least 10 minutes.
This allows the battery to recharge in case it has drained.

This could fix your disabled iPod, if the problem was caused by a dead battery.
Click "OK" if your computer opens a "Connect to iTunes" alert box.

Depending on your version of iTunes, the message may indicate the iPod is in "recovery mode" and you need to restore the device.

ITunes opens and resets your iPod for you.
Unplug the iPod from your computer if you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" alert box.

Make sure the iPod is charged before you attempt the hard reset.
Press and hold both the On/Off/Wake button and the Home button on your iPod.

Keep the buttons pressed.
Wait for the Apple logo to appear, it may take 10 seconds or longer.

When you see it, release the On/Off/Wake button but keep the Home button pressed.
Release the Home button when you see a picture of a USB cable with an arrow pointing to the iTunes logo.

Plug your iPod back into the computer.
The iTunes "recovery mode" message will appear.

Click "OK" to complete the reset.

Unlock disabled ipod touch


The only way to unlock the iPod touch is to do a full wipe/recovery in iTunes. Reboot the iPod into recovery recovery mode by plugging it into the computer, hold both power and home buttons until the iPod turns off, then keep holding the home button but let go of power until iTunes says it detected an iPod in recovery mode. Use iTunes to restore the iPod and set it up.

Ipod 4th generation is disabled


Disabled iPod touches are from lack of inputting the proper password. If it has no timer on it, a factory reset / restore or update of the iOS via iTunes should do it.

My ipod is disabled and i need a simple way to fix it!! It says that connect to itunes


iPod Is Disabled After a series of more failed attempts, your iPod displays the same "iPod is Disabled" message, but with an added "Connect to iTunes" message. At this point, your iPod shuts down completely and you cannot make any more attempts to enter the passcode. In order to restore the device at this stage, you need to connect it to a computer with iTunes installed. Ideally, connect it to a computer that you've used before for syncing your iPod.
