That is not a problem. If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with
which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the
device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced
with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your
data will not be present Follow the steps that i have outlined below. If this does not completely help your situation
please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the
following: 1 If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to
manage its songs. . . Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. 2 Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. 3 Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a
PC. 4 Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. 5 Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. 6 Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. 7 Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal
features again. if that does not work you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please
note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod. If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your
combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer,
your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data." If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to
assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great
day.

For unlocking you need unlock code from imei number. there are many apps and software which generate unlock code for free. here is how to unlock iphone ipad which is locked disabled due to wrong passcode entered.

Below is procedure for unlocking iphone ipad.
First try to recover your password for that connect your ipod to computer via usb cable.
Now ipod is recognize by computer and find the folder named ipod. Now browse ipod folder and open ipod_control folder , inside that folder there is ipod _unlock file. Try to edit that file with some software to recover your password inside that file otherwise. Delete or rename that file and power of your ipod and restart it. There is other way to recover password but when I put such answer my answer marked as spam and deleted and some senior member using that answer method for their answer and get reputation.
Ipod got disabled when you have entered wrong passcode many times. And to unlock this passcode either recover your passcode from ipod or restore your ipod via ituens.
For that connect ipod to computer and if ipod is recognized by computer then open itunes click on device tab then summary tab on right side pane you will find restore ipod.Click on Restore iphone and ipod will be restored but this will erase all data on ipod.
If you don't want to delete data then there is option to restore ipod from backup. So restore ipod from recent backup. For that open itunes - click on devices and right click on ipod there you will find option restore from backup.
If none of above method can solve your problem then enter into dfu or recovery mode. For that connect your ipod via usb cable to computer and thenPower off your ipod, now press and hold power button and home button for 15 seconds, now release power buttonbut keep holding home button now itunes will detect ipod in recovery mode now restore your ipod.

Unlock an iPod Model A1199
Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.
Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

plug it into your computer and through itunes on your original computer you will be able to reset it. If it is not the original computer that you are using you will be able to reset it but will probably lose the information on it.
