You will have to put the iPod in to DFU mode and restore it that way, plug the iPod in to the computer with iTunes open, then hold the lock and home button for roughly 12 seconds till the iPod goes off, a second after it goes off, let go of the lock button but keep holding the home button, a message should pop up on iTunes saying that the iPod is in recovery mode, then you should be able to restore it. :-)

Ipod got disabled when you have entered wrong passcode many times. And to unlock this passcode either recover your passcode from ipod or restore your ipod via ituens.

For that connect ipod to computer and if ipod is recognized by computer then open itunes click on device tab then summary tab on right side pane you will find restore ipod. Click on restore ipod and ipod will be restored but this will erase all data on ipod.

If you don’t want to delete data then there is option to restore ipod from backup. So restore ipod from recent backup. For that open itunes - click on devices and right click on ipod there you will find option restore from backup.

If none of above method can solve your problem then enter into dfu or recovery mode. For that connect your ipod via usb cable to computer and then Power off your ipod, now press and hold power button and home button for 15 seconds, now release power button but keep holding home button now itunes will detect ipod in recovery mode now restore your ipod.
