You’ll need to restore the iPod in order to use the iPod again, there is no way to get data off that once it’s disabled.

Turn off the iPod while the charging cable is plugged in from computer to iPod. Once it’s off press and hold the home button then use the power button to turn the iPod on while holding the home button.

Once you get the iTunes logo you can stop holding the home button and then do a restore as prompted by iTunes. If the firmware download takes more than 15 minutes the iPod will kick itself out of recovery mode, you’ll just need to put it into recovery mode again to do the restore when the firmware is downloaded.
