By "disabled" do you mean you have used the in-feature locking system on the ipod for protection?

For iTunes, Make sure you have the usb cables firmly attached to both the iPod and the computer. Go to:

1) Start bar on your computer
2) Look for "iTunes" in your programs
3) Click on "iTunes" to open it up.

If your iPod is connected to your computer, after about 20 seconds, iTunes should read your iPod and show it.

Also, if you have "disabled" it, it may just be as simple as resetting your iPod.

How to reset:

1) Move the "lock" on your ipod to locked position then quickly back to unlocked.
2) Hold then Menu and Center button down together till the Apple logo comes up. This should take only max 10 seconds.
3) It should return to the main menu on the iPod.

Hope I Helped, :-) Good luck. Don't worry, your father won't kill you, he might be disapointed, but definetly not that.
(I know from previous experience).

My ipod touch 4th generation says -ipod is disabled connect to itunes- tried that and itunes wouldnt open unless unlocked my ipod and i cant. I tried restoring it and itunes said ipod can not be restored...


"iPod is disabled - Connect to iTunes" . This is because someone(or something?) has tried to crack your password too many times, which causes Iphone/Ipod to automatically disable itself to protect your data.

To restore your iPod, you must connect your iPod to iTunes with your iPod connector table. Make sure it is on and has this message when you connect it to your computer. Once connected, iTunes should detect it as usual.

Once connected, make sure you have all the proper sync settings enabled - for example, applications, music, photos, etc. Change something so that the Sync button in the bottom right appears in the iTunes window. Then sync the data.

When syncing is finished, turn on your iPod / iPhone and you should notice that the message is gone. Type in your password and the disabled message should be gone.

If the message is still there, try holding the sleep and home button at the same time until the iPod turns off, then continue holding the sleep and home button until a screen with the iTunes logo and a picture of the connector cable appears. This will put your iPod in Restore mode. With this option, you must click the Restore button in iTunes, which will delete all your data on the iPod.

plug it into your computer and through itunes on your original computer you will be able to reset it. If it is not the original computer that you are using you will be able to reset it but will probably lose the information on it. Hope this helps

Double Problems...


this problem happens when you try connecting a ipod to a new Itunes. If you know the lock code you can remove it temporarily until you have it connected and authorized for that computer then you can apply a lock code to it again. the lock code can be removed by going to the settings icon then general option and turning off the passcode lock. then plug into your computer and Itunes will start and go and authorize that computer then all should be good.
