Unfortunately the only way to get into it is to erase all of the data. But on the bright side you should still have all of your music and apps saved to your computer so you shouldn't have any issues with putting all of you stuff back on.
You can check out this video:

And here are my directions:

  1. Plug your iPod into your your computer and turn it off. Make sure iTunes is closed.
  2. Hold the sleep button (on top) for 3 seconds.
  3. While holding the sleep button, hold the home button (on front) and the sleep button for 10 seconds.
  4. Let go of the sleep button and just hold the home button for up to 30 seconds or until you get a message that you will need to restore your iPod with iTunes before you can use it.
  5. After that restore your iPod to an older backup.

I have a ipod touch that i locked because i could not remember passcode i have tried to restore itunes but now it will not even come on

hi there, when you mean it will not even come on, does that mean that the ipod touch won't come on or itunes. If the ipod touch, then you may need a apple expert to help you with that. If it's itunes, just keep entering bad passwords. After a few more tries, it will reset on it's own and should become unlocked.

My itouch is disabled how do i unlock it

Plug the iPod touch into the computer that it was last synced with.

Once iTunes recognizes the iPod you should be able to unlock it with your password.

If you do not remember your password or you still cannot unlock the iPod, then you should try to restore the iPod.

To restore the iPod:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button and connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with.
3) Continue to hold the Home button until the iTunes symbol appears on the iPod's screen. The iPod is now in recovery mode.
4) After iTunes has recognized that the iPod is in recovery mode, follow iTunes instructions and restore the iPod.

If restoring the iPod doesn't work, then you will need to call Apple customer support.

I accidentally got a password lock and cant remember it.

Use the computer that you originally used, and open up itunes this should allow you to reset the password and resync your data. If you use a computer that was not used to sync it you will be able to unlock it but the ipod will be wiped.

Hope this helps

Lost password on my ipod touch 16gb

The only way to unlock any ipod with out the password is to restore it using itunes. In case you are unfamiliar with how to do a restore on your ipod touch i have posted a step by step below. Take care :)

Last Modified: February 16, 2009 Article: HT1414 Old Article: 305744 Using the Restore function for your iPhone or iPod touch is part of standard troubleshooting procedure. Restoring your device will erase all data from your iPhone or iPod touch, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPhone or iPod touch settings are restored to their factory condition.
Whenever you restore your iPhone or iPod touch, Apple highly recommends that you perform a sync prior to restoring in order to back up any changes since your last sync. If you have movie rentals on the device, see this document before restoring.
Use the following steps to restore your iPhone or iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPhone or iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPhone or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPhone or iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (As long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).
Once the restore process has completed the iPhone or iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up
