Try this one:
According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the
IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one
IPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the
computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the
computer you use to manage its songs]. . . 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."
Good Luck, I hope this helps

Itouch disabled


When your iPod Touch displays a message telling you to connect it to iTunes, it may be in recovery mode, or have been disconnected in the middle of an update.
To get rid of the screen, you must reset your device. If in passcode mode, an iPod Touch must be manually unlocked or fully restored to get back to the home screen.Forcing a Reboot
When your iPod Touch is stuck on a screen that is instructing you to connect with iTunes, a normal restart will probably not work, as the hard drive has become frozen.
You can still, however force the iPod to reboot using a process called resetting.
To reset an iPod Touch, hold down the "Sleep/Wake" and "Home" buttons at the same time until an Apple logo appears, indicating that the device is rebooting.
When an iPod Touch reboots, it always goes back to the lock screen. Passcode mode will still be enabled.

Unlocking With the Passcode
If you know the passcode for your iPod Touch, slide the "Slide to Unlock" arrow and then enter your code on the next screen.
Upon entering your password, you will be directed to the device's home screen. If you enter the wrong password too many times, it will become disabled temporarily.
The iPod Touch can also be set to erase all content after 10 incorrect passcode attempts if you previously enabled this feature, don't attempt more than 9 entries.


Unlocking Without Passcode If you have forgotten the passcode to your iPod Touch, the only way to unlock the device is by restoring it.
Restoring an iPod Touch returns it to the factory settings, meaning that any settings, applications or music you added to the iPod are removed.
Once the device is restored, you can re-add your downloads and other information using the backup copies in your computer iTunes program.
The passcode setting will be disabled unless you manually enable it again.

Consideration

If you don't have a backup of your music and applications in iTunes on your computer, you can also download another copy from the iTunes Store or App Store on your device after a restore.
Any photos that are deleted during restore, however, will be lost forever if a backup does not exist.
Always back up your information via sync on a regular basis to avoid this problem.

My ipod touch is disabled, it has 21543912 minutes before it will enable is there a faster and more efficient way to enable it. Celene


If you connect it to the computer you initially synced the ipod with, it should reset the lockout time. If you can't remember your password you'll have to use itunes to restore the ipod.

Hi my 16gb apple ipod doesnt work someone try to open my ipod by using wrong password so it tells ipod is disabled connect to itunes how can i solve this problem could u help me


You should connect it to your computer, I've actually never had this problem but I guess once your on iTunes it would reset the password and you could entry it normally. If it doesnt you could try to connect it to iTunes and then hitting the restore button. This will erase all your data and the put the latest back up you had on your computer in your iPod. Normally the information in the games and so would be erased. But contacts, notes and other apple-related apps will remain un-touched.

PUT PASSOCDE IN AND GUESSED 5 TIMES BUT KNO IT SAYS DISABLED. 1HR


Hi Viper_nx,

To reset the password is very simple provided you have the pc with the iTunes you normally connect the ipod to. Here goes:
  • Plug the ipod into the PC using the USB cable as normal
  • Once the ipod main page comes up on iTunes click the button labelled 'Restore'
  • Choose which ever is the bottom option (if it gives you any)
  • It will restart itself 1 or 2 times. Don't touch it at all during all of this but follow any onscreen instructions. It may want to resync and re-put all you media back onto the ipod.
When it's done, eject it and all settings on the iPod will be set to the defaults. This means the password will be reset to 'off'.

All the best
