What most likely has happened is that you or someone was trying to access your iPod and tried to enter a passcode to get in. After a certain amount of tries, your iPod will disable itself. Here's how you can get it back.
Step 1: Turn on your computer, and connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod.
Step 2: Open up iTunes on your computer.
Step 3: In iTunes, go to the left side of your screen and scroll down, when you see your iPod, select it.
Step 4: You should now see on the right side of your screen some general iPod information. Scroll down to until you see a "Restore" button.
Step 5: Hit Restore, and wait for a few minutes. THIS WILL WIPE EVERYTHING THAT WAS IN YOUR IPOD AND RESYNC IT WITH EVERYTHING THAT IS IN YOUR ITUNES LIBRARY. This is the only working method known.
If you lean "unlock" because you just can't use the dial, just flip the switch on the bottom of the Ipod.
If your Ipod has locked up and you can't do anything with it, then you can reset it. Don't worry - it doesn't erase your music. Press the MENU and the middle button at the same time, and hold them until you see the Apple logo. It may take a try or two, but you'll get good at it.
