Ok this is what u should try to do.

1) plug into the comp and try restoring it on iTunes if this doesnt work then u need to put it into "RECOVERY MODE" this is easy to do i will list the steps below,

1) plug into comp and open iTunes first.

2) To put into recovery mode, hold down the home and sleep button for 10-15 seconds (the shut down screen will appear but keep holding down the two buttons) When the apple appears, let go of the sleep button. continue to hold the HOME button and it should go into recovery mode

I connect my iPod Touch 4th generation. iTunes gives me an error that it cannot connect to this iPhone because an unknown error has occured ex8000065

Its a weird issue but I would suggest trying to restore your iPod back to factory settings, you should be able to connect again after following these steps:
Step 1: Plug your iPod into your computer and open up iTunes.

Step 2: After a few moments, scroll down the left side of your screen until you see your iPod. Select it.

Step 3: The right side of your screen should now show the general information about your iPod. Scroll down the right side of your screen until you see a button labeled "Restore"

Step 4: Click OK. Give it a few minutes and your iPod will be restored to factory settings WARNING: ALL THE INFORMATION THAT WAS ON YOUR IPOD WILL BE ERASED. Once the iPod is restored, it will be able to sync with whatever is in your iTunes library.

The ipod unlock code is fixed by the user. You can restore that code:
Connect iPod to the main computer you use (computer with which iPod synced with), and open iTunes. Now disconnect the iPod from the computer, it will be unlocked.
If this doesn't work, you will have to restore the ipod to factory settings-this will erase all the personal folders in the ipod like music, videos...etc. To restore to factory settings, there's a guide on the apple's website:

Iod scren displays a yeidl sign and folder file on the screen

Hi, As i understand you see a folder with exclamation mark on it...

So 1st you hav to try resting the ipod.... Try to press and hold the menu and the center button for approx 6 to 8 secs... then once you see a Apple logo release the buttons. this should work

Other solution would be restoring your ipod to factory settings by connecting it to computer and restoring it using itunes... then update the software as well

If not... try to connect the ipod to computer and then open Mycomputer....Right click on ipod.... then format it.... wait for the format process... then using itunes restore it to factory settings

This has to work
