    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."

Hi,
There is no method to recover the password or bypass it. Apple very clearly says this in their manual. Now that we have this cleared.
You will need to restore the ipod. I know this sucks but unfortunately this is the only way to start using it again.
To restore iPod. Connect > Open iTunes.
It will show up as a device.
click the device link where it says 'XYZ's iPod'
You will see the details of your device along with link to restore ipod.
click this 'Restore' button. You will get a warning that it will erase all data, settings and music. Click Yes. It will take you about 90 minutes to setup your ipod again if you do manual manage. The restore process iteself takes under 20 minutes.

How to unlock an ipod


Apple's iPod touch, a portable music player with a touchscreen display, is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery that provides up to 40 hours of audio playback and up to seven hours of video playback when fully charged. To conserve power, the iPod touch locks by default after a minute of not being used. If you want to use your iPod touch after it locks, you will need to unlock it. You might need to type a password, depending on how you've configured the device.

Press the "Home" button, located below the screen, or press the silver "Sleep/Wake" switch located at the top of the device. Swipe a finger across the "Slide to Unlock" slider on the screen. The iPod touch unlocks. Press the "Home" button or press the "Sleep/Wake" switch when you have enabled passcode protection on your iPod, then swipe a finger across the "Slide to Unlock" slider on the screen. The "Enter a Passcode" message appears. Type in your passcode, and then tap "OK." The iPod touch unlocks. Forgot Your Password b> Connect the iPod Touch to your computer using the USB cable. Wait for iTunes to open and sync with your computer. Eject your iPod Touch from the computer by clicking the "Eject" icon beside the iPod's entry in the "Devices" section of iTunes. Disconnect your iPod Touch from the USB cable. Your iPod Touch will be turned on and will be unlocked. Tap the "General" menu on the iPod Touch. Tap "Passcode Lock," and then tap either "Turn Passcode Off" or "Change Passcode." If you tap "Change Passcode," you can then enter a new passcode.

Hi garciaelvira...

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.
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."

I forget my password on ipod touch


You can unlock it by simply connecting it to the computer that it was originally loaded from. iTunes will unlock the iPod for you, but it will not reset iPod password. Of course, as long as you don’t need to lock it again, that should be okay. The iPod will not lock automatically — it only does so if you specifically select the “lock screen” option.
There are several hacks and workarounds out there that will supposedly let you clear out the password by editing files in the iPod’s control directories through disk mode access, but I have never been able to consistently reproduce these, particularly on more recent firmware versions.
The only sure-fire way to actually remove the password entirely is to perform a “restore” on your iPod, which will erase everything on it, basically returning it to factory settings. If you’re using automatic sync, however, it should be almost trivial to reload it from iTunes, although it will take a bit of time.
