Question about Apple iPod touch
I had the same problem. this is all the steps needed, calling apple isnt necessary.
first: press down on the top power button and on the menu button
second: keep pressing, eventually the screen to turn it off will pop out. ignore it and keep pressing.
third: the itouch will turn off completely but dont stop pressing
fourth: the apple sign will come out. you may now release.
fifth: now you should be able to connect to itunes that will restore your ipod.
oh and get some ice for your fingers . lol.

First if you really forget your passcode turn it on from sleep mode. Then hold the top power button and the home button with your thumbs and then take your index finger and slide the part that says "Slide to power off." then wait 10 secconds then release the top button and wait 45 secconds and release the home button then the apple screen appears. Next you wait for the iTunes symbol with USB pointing up from the iTunes symbol. Time to hook up to the computer. Now once you have hooked it up to iTunes. Click on your device and click on "Restore". Pick the device without the date on it. Then it should start extracting the restore and preparing it then it will erase all data (it must be hooked up the computer first synced with or else you will fatally lose all your data and you won't ever get it back.). Then it will sync all your data back (This will take about an hour to do.). It will erase your passcode too. Once you turn it on and swipe "Slide to unlock." it will say "This iPod has been sucessfully restored. Would you like to put a passcode on". Hit ok then put the passcode on and be sure to remember the passcode this time.

My son disabled my itouch and then said I'd have to connect to itunes. Problem was when i connected to iTunes it wouldn't connect for some reason.
So while the itouch was connected to my iTunes I held the power and home button down at the same time. Doing this allowed me the option to restore the itouch.
Granted it's a pain in the **** to loose everything and start from scratch but it's better than a disabled itouch
