What do you mean disabled? Does it say disabled because you entered the wrong code too many times, or does it say connect to iTunes?


i have the same problem, and exactly after screen replacement, Did you find any solution ? i found something but i didn't try it yet ( the only way that I know how to do that is in the Windows environment. Not sure how to do it with a Mac OS. There is a way to erase the password without erasing your files:

Plug in your iPod.

Open My Computer (or Computer for Vista).

Click on Folder options and enable to view hidden files.

Go to iPod_control and click on the folder named Device. If your iPod is locked, there will be a file _locked. Rename the file to _unlocked.

Remove your iPod and it should be cleared.

This is the only way that I am aware off, other then a total restore where you will of course lose your data. Good luck and let us know if it works.)

if you tried it and worked, just tell me please.
