Question about Apple iPod nano
I think my son changed his password to many times. Would that lock it. I can not get passed,ipod is disabled
Changing the password does not lock it. When a device is locked or disabled, it's usually due to too many incorrect password attempts.
An iOS restore / update should be able to override it. Be sure to backup the data.

1. disconnect the usb cable from the touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computers usb port
2. power off the touch, (press and hold the sleep/wake button for a few seconds untill the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the touch to turn off.
3. press and hold the home button while reconnecting the usb cable to the touch. When you connect the cable to the touch it should then power on.
4. continue holding the home button while the touch starts up you will see the apple logo

SOURCE: ipod disabled connect to itunes
you can reset its password....but you'll lose all your data here's how...
Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" or you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again.
If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPhone and repeat steps 3-6.

"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.
