You will have to create a I tunes account in order to update the bios and drivers.
After you install I tunes to your computer then connect your I Pod to the computer with I tunes running using the data cord.
Then I tunes will sync with your player and then you will be able to update the I Pod.
It will ask you if you want to sync with this computer....you will reply yes.
You can then add all your music, pictures, videos into I tunes and the I Pod will then be recognized by the computer as your souce computer.

Step 1: Connect your iPod to your computer and start up iTunes.
Step 2: On the left side, select your iPod.
Step 3: On the right side, scroll down to "Restore"
These steps will unlock your iPod, but it will also re-sync everything you have in your iTunes library on there. It is the only working method.
Use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

YES SHUT YOUR I POD OFF, THEN CONNECT YOUR USB CABLE TO YOUR PC AND TO YOUR IPOD THEN HOLD THE POWER AND HOME BUT UNTIL YOU SEE THE ITUNES ICON AND THE USB CABLE RIGHT UNDER IT ON THE IPOD SCREEN AS SOON AS THAT POP'S UP LET GO AND IT SHOULD SYNC INTO ITUNES, IF YOU HAVE NO PC THEN YOUR WELL OUT OF LUCK.
It depends on the severity and the settings you have given the iPod... Here's the full explanation. I would recommend reading the second paragraph first, but the solution if you really forgot your password is in the first paragraph.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can 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 to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present. Refer to "Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software."
"If you enter the wrong passcode too many times, you'll see a message that says "iPhone is disabled" and to try again later. If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode."
