You need to put in DFU MODE, and restore your ipod touch. Easy: Press The Home Button + power button for 10 seconds. after 10 seconds, press only the Homme button. And now, connect your ipod touch on itunes and press RESTORE.

1. Keep the power and home buttons pressed until the "Connect to iTunes" screen comes and restore (everything will be erased). or 2. Ssh your iphonego to th path mobile/Library/Preferences/delete com.apple.springboard.plistoff and on your iPhone (MAY need to be jailbroken, not entirely sure).
The iPod touch is disabled when the incorrect unlock code is entered too many times. The time the iPod makes you wait increases each time an incorrect unlock code is entered.
There are two ways you should be able to unlock the iPod. First, connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with. After iTunes recognizes the iPod, you should be able to enter your unlock code and unlock the iPod.
If the first method doesn't work or you don't remember your unlock code, then do this: 1) Turn the iPod off. 2) Hold down the Home button and connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with. 3)Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears of the iPod's screen. 4)Wait for iTunes to recognize the iPod and then follow the onscreen directions to restore the iPod.
If neither method works, you will need to contact Apple Customer Support.
Have you got itunes installed on your computer? If so plug your ipod in to your computer and open itunes, see if it's visible in there. If it is then you're in luck, you can use itunes to restore your touch back to factory settings, by click on your ipod on the left and looking through the menus in the middle to restore it. If you need any more help in doing so let me know.
