Do the following steps to bypass that lock and go on your way to restoring your device:

  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.

If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures and some screenshots on my tip (link below):

My ipod says it is disabled and it will only let me get to the front page it wont even let me get to the password page its says connect to itunes but when i do it says u have to put ur password in to use...

So you are having problem with your disabled iPod?

Try this (it may losing of some data):
1. Hold down the power and home button for 10 seconds (it will bring the iPod to DFU-Device-Firmware-Update mode)
2. Connect your iPod to iTunes, and your computer will detect your iPod as DFU mode, your iTunes will detect it.
3. Click restore button, and it will automatically restore your iPod to the factory reset.

Hope that will help! Any questions? Feel free to ask me =]

My sreen locked and it says disabled connect to itunes but i did and it's not working. it won't let me enter my password and i know it.

You need to reset your ipod. First, switch the hold switch to on, then to off, then press and hold the only two buttons on that thing: the power and the circle. Hold that for about 6 seconds, and then plug it in. This will not hurt your ipod in any way or take songs off of it.
