If your touch does not show the number pad or you have forgotten the passcode, it is now necessary to restore thetouch on the computer that was used to originally sync it, so you canreset your passcode and resync your data.

If you use a different computer, you will be able to unlock and remove passcode, but you will lose your data.

Thelink below will explains what I said in more detail, and at the end ofthe article there is another link on how to actually update and restoreyour touch.

SOURCE: ipod touch is disabled itunes won't connect says

If you have forgotten your iPhone’s Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.

1. First you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process.
2. Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
3. Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
4. Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
5. After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
6. Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
7. Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone’s setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode.

You should then follow these steps below to activate the passcode again.

  1. Click the Home button to bring up the main menu
  2. Click on Settings
  3. In the Settings screen click on General
  4. In the General screen click on Passcode Lock
  5. This will open the Set Passcode screen. Enter a memorable 4-figure code and re-enter it when prompted
  6. You will now be at the Passcode Lock screen. You can change when you are prompted to enter the Passcode. The default setting – Immediately – means you will be asked to enter it as soon as your start using the iPhone. But you can change the setting so that the prompt appears after a certain period of use
  7. Press the Home button to return to the main menu.

from apple If you have previously synced your device with iTunes, you may be able to reset the passcode by restoring the device:
  1. Connect the device to the computer with which you normally sync and open iTunes.
    Note: If iTunes asks you to enter the passcode, try another computer that you have synced with. Otherwise, go to "If you have never synced your device with iTunes, or you do not have access to a computer" section below.
  2. If the device is still disabled, or if iTunes does not automatically sync your device, sync the device with iTunes.
  3. If you have chosen to encrypt your backup, it will contain the passcode. Disable backup encryption before restoring from backup. Learn more about iOS backups in iTunes.

If you own an iPod touch, you have the option to set a password, which Apple calls a passcode, to protect your data.
Anyone who attempts to access your iPod, after unlocking it or turning it on, will require the passcode to do so.
However, if you forget your passcode or incorrectly enter it, you will eventually see an alert that your iPod touch has become disabled.
To unlock your iPod touch after forgetting the passcode, and still access your content, you must connect it to the computer with which you last synced it.

Connect your iPod touch to the computer with which you last synced the music player.
Launch iTunes if it does not automatically open.
Select your iPod touch under the devices list, and click the "Summary" tab in iTunes.
Click "Restore" and, when prompted, click the "Back Up" button to save a back up of your iPod touch in iTunes.

Click "Restore" when prompted, after the back up saves. After restoring, click "Ok."
Choose the most recent back up from the drop down list on the "Set Up Your iPod" screen.

Click the "Continue" button to restore your iPod touch.

How to restart a disabled ipod


If you enter the wrong passcode repeatedly on an iPod Touch, it will display a message that says "iPod is disabled." At first, the iPod will only be disabled for a minute, but if you continue to enter the wrong passcode, it will become disabled for longer periods of time, and finally, you will need to connect it to the computer with which you last synced it. From here, you will need to restore the iPod Touch to factory settings.

Open iTunes. Click "iTunes" in the upper-left corner, then select "Check for Updates" to ensure you have the latest version. Connect your iPod Touch to your computer with the USB 2.0 docking cable. Click your iPod's name under "Devices" on the left-hand side of the iTunes browser. Click the "Summary" tab. Click "Restore." Follow the prompts in the dialog box that appears to finish the restore. Your iPod will return to factory settings. Choose to set up the iPod as a new iPod or from a backup in the screen that appears when the restore is complete.

How do i over ride the passcode on my ipod touch


Hi

Some iPods, such as the iPod Touch, include a passcode option as a security feature. The passcode is intended to deter thieves from stealing the device and to discourage any unauthorized use. If you have set up a passcode on your iPod and now have forgotten it, you can bypass the passcode screen. Bypassing the passcode screen requires that the device be fully restored. Restoring the iPod will remove all files from the device. Only files in the iTunes library, or in another place on the computer, can be restored. Once restoration is complete, you can update the iPod.



What you need? USB CABLE



Bypass the iPod Passcode and Restore the Device

1 Open the iTunes software on your computer. If you don't have iTunes installed, see Resource for download link.

2 Connect the iPod to the computer using the USB cable.

3 Press and hold down both the "Power" and "Home" keys simultaneously for 10 seconds or until the screen goes black. Now release the "Power" key.

4 Release the "Home" key when the message "We have detected an itouch in recovery mode" appears. Confirm that the iPod will be restored.

5 Hit "Back up" to save your iPod settings when prompted.

6 Select the "Restore" option. Allow restoration to begin. Make sure to keep the iPod connected to the computer and iTunes open. Once complete, the Apple logo will display on the iPod screen, and iTunes will notify you when the process is complete.



Update the iPod

1 Open iTunes and connect the iPod to the computer using the USB cable.

2 Select your iPod under "Devices" in the left pane.

3 Click the "Summary" tab.

4 Click the "Check for Update" button. The iTunes software will check for any available updates. Follow the additional prompts to confirm and install the updates.

My ipod touch is locked and i forgot the passcode and its disabled and i cant link it up to itunes unless i unlock it which i cant


Updating and Restoring iPod touch Software You can use iTunes to update or reinstall iPod touch software, restore default settings, and delete all data on iPod touch. ââ If you update, the iPod touch software is updated but your downloaded applications, settings, and songs are not affected. ââ If you restore, the latest version of iPod touch software is reinstalled, default settings are restored, and data stored on iPod touch is deleted, including downloaded applications, songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. In iTunes 7.7, you can also restore from a backup without deleting data stored on iPod touch. Note: Deleted data is no longer accessible via the iPod touch user interface, but is not permanently erased from your iPod touch until it is overwritten by new data. For information about permanently erasing all content and settings, see “Resetting iPod touch” on page 94. Update or restore iPod touch: 1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes. 2 Connect iPod touch to your computer. 3 Select iPod touch in the iTunes sidebar and click the Summary tab. 4 Click “Check for Update.” iTunes tells you if there’s a newer version of the iPod touch software available. 5 Click Update to install the latest version of the software. Or click Restore to restore. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.

8GB iPod Touch Disabled


Thanks to everyone who provided solution inputs. I finally have my iPod back. The solution is: 1. Turn of your iPod. 2. While holding down the 'Home' button, connect to iTunes WARNING: Doing this will return your iPod back to original 'out of the box' settings and you will lose everything. On the bright side, you get a 'fresh' start and it will auto update to the most recent software version. Good luck!
