Question about Apple iPod touch Second Gen (8 GB, MB528LL/A) Digital Media Player
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
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

If i remember right, you need to plug it in to your computer and when itunes opens up go to the ipod thing where it shows all the setting and info for the ipod and it should be resettable somewhere in there.

You can connect your iPOd on the computer which you primarily use with your iPOD, then open Itunes when you disconnect from it it will be no longer locked.

I'm afraid the only way to to reset the Ipod using Itunes. Holding both the sleep button,and home button together for more that 25seconds will put the Ipod into recovery mode which will then enable you to reset it.
If it is you Ipod, with your music on then doing a restore from Itunes won't delete anything, it will simply re-sync it.
