If you dont mind losing everything on the ipod -- connect to your computer and sync with your iTunes.
This will replace everything on the ipod with the contents of your itunes.

If this is not what you want, you will need to google - removing songs from ipod
this will give you various ways depending on your set up on how to get the tracks off your ipod without going through itunes.

I HAVE A IPOD TOUCH AND IT DISABLED FOR 4989612 MINUTES


  1. Connect your iPod Touch to the computer you usually sync it with. When you disconnect your iPod, it should now be unlocked.
  2. If Step 1 does not work, you have to restore your iPod Touch. Be advised that restoring your iPod Touch returns it to the original factory settings. This means that all your songs and files will be deleted and lost. You can resync your files to your iPod from iTunes once you have finished restoration. Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes before proceeding.
  3. In the left navigation panel in iTunes, select your iPod under the "Devices" section. Click the "Summary" tab and select "Restore."
  4. When iTunes prompts you about backing up your data, click "Back Up." In the following window, click "Restore."
  5. After the restore process completes, you will see the Apple logo on the screen of your iPod. Leave your iPod connected to your computer until it shows up again on the iTunes navigation panel.
  6. Your iPod touch is now unlocked. In iTunes you will be able to setup your iPod. Select the backup you made in the drop-down menu to restore your data files. Click "Continue" to finish the restoration.
WARNING:
Apple notes that the company will not be able to help you unlock your iPod if you forget the security combination. Your only choice is to restore the device to the original factory settings.

Use the cable included with your iPod touch to connect the device with your computer. Plug the fat end into your iPod touch and the longer end into your computer.

Thanks to everyone who provided solution inputs. I finally have my iPod back. The solution is: 1. Turn of your iPod. 2. While holding down the 'Home' button, connect to iTunes WARNING: Doing this will return your iPod back to original 'out of the box' settings and you will lose everything. On the bright side, you get a 'fresh' start and it will auto update to the most recent software version. Good luck!
