If you haven't done anything stupid before that screen appeared, try turning it off first by holding the power and the home button at the same time for around 10 sec. (or until the image from your iPod screen disappears). After that, turn it back on by holding the power button for around 3 sec. Let it load first before you do anything. If the same screen appear again, then, that's the time you restore.
If your itouch reads "disabled connect to itunes" and shows the "locked" icon and your itunes will not even recognize the device and itunes says your itouch is locked and enter password, Here is what you do to restore your itouch: (you will lose all itouch contents but it is worth it as almost all say it is broken and worthless)
1. Turn off your itouch or ipod. Do not have charger / usb connected to ipod or itouch.
2. With device off, connect the charger end of the cable to the itouch / ipod but do not plug the usb into the computer.
3. Open Itunes
3. While holding down the menu button (and I mean keep holding it down), plug the usb into the computer.
4. Wait to see the new wonderful graphic on your device and computer screen that shows that your ipod / itouch is recognized.
Your itouch will start immediately restoring itself and you are ready to fill it up with wonderful images, photos and videos again!
So happy to share this tip. It saved me money and time.
You can put the iPod into recovery mode, and then restore the iPod.
To do this: 1) Turn the iPod off. 2) Hold down the Home button on the iPod while connecting it to the computer it was last synced with. 3) Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears on the iPod's screen. 4) Wait for iTunes to recognize the iPod and then follow the onscreen instructions to restore the iPod.
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
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.
