Ipod touch ? if thats the case you have to plug it into your computer using the usb cable.. open itunes and click restore ( it is then up to you if you want to add a password after itunes is finished. ) if itunes dose not detect the ipod or you are having trouble restoring it then make sure you have the most resent itunes installed then hold down the home button and power button at the exact same time and keep holding them. you will hear a ding sound and ipod will turn off,keep holding the home button but leave go of the power button when you hear the ding sound.now keep holding the home button untill you hear another ding sound ( this is the ipod powering back up but screen will be blank ) you can now leave go of the home button ( screen will be blank ) but itunes will see the ipod and say "ipod detected in dfu mode,you must restore " click restore ( if you leave go of the home button before the ding sound you will see the apple logo...if you see the apple logo you have missed the chance to get into dfu mode so do the steps again .. dfu mode is the best way to restore any apple device

Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the computer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is disabled/locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord. Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. You can then go into the ipod and install a new pass code if you wish to. Hope this helps, Rob
Step 1: Turn on your computer, and connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod.
Step 2: Open up iTunes on your computer.
Step 3: In iTunes, go to the left side of your screen and scroll down, when you see your iPod, select it.
Step 4: You should now see on the right side of your screen some general iPod information. Scroll down to until you see a "Restore" button. This will erase everything that was on the iPod, and sync whatever is in your iTunes library. It is the only known way. Note: If this was helpful please vote for this solution!
Connect to iTunes, go to the settings menu of your iPod (click on the picture of your ipod on the bar on the side.) Then click "restore my ipod's settings," or something similar to that. You will have to re-sync your ipod, but your password will be removed. hope it helps

see the screen go blank or not. Plug the
USB end into the computer with itunes open. Your ipod
will mount in recovery mode. Restore

if you need any further help let me know. Good Luck
You might be able to restore the iPod,
you just need to put it in a different mode. Try plugging it into your
computer. Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons at the same
time until the screen goes black (can take longer than 10 seconds) then
let go of the sleep button (the button on the top of the unit) while
keeping the home button held in (the button on the front of the iPod).
Keep the home button held in until your computer recognizes new
hardware. You should hear some sort of sound coming from your computer
speakers. That and the "installing new hardware" notice should come up
in your taskbar (this is where you computer shows the clock). Let go of
the home button once this happens. Open up iTunes and then restore it.
Just a little FYI - it may take longer than 4 minutes before you can a
response. You might want to wait at least a few hours before bumping
your thread. Remember that this is a normal work week and not everyone
is on these forums during normal working hours (ie 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM).
Most of the traffic here on iLounge is during the evening.
press and hold the home and power buttons, when it turns off DO NOT let go of the home button continue holding until it restores itself then connect it to your computer and restore it. unfortunately it will erase everything.
