here is my answer from a similar question How to I fix my disabled iPod Touch? Apple says "If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons." Now there is a way to erase the password but I am not sure if this would work when you are already disabled. I guess you can always try and hope you have a windows computer :-) anyhow you plug in your iPod. Open My Computer (or Computer for Vista). Click on Folder options and enable to view hidden files. Next 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 will be cleared, again not sure if it works for a disabled one. Just thought of something else. Make sure you have your library backed up.

Also check what Apple has to say about that on here http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808

A restore on the other hand will return the phone to its default settings and YOU WILL lose all information. You should only do that as a last resort and only do it on the computer that you normally sync with. That way it should restore the last backup. Check on here for directions on how to do that.

The only other thing would be to put your iPod in DFU and restore, again YOU WILL LOSE all data since the last backup.

DFU Mode

Connect your iPod to your computer

Turn your iPod Off

Press and hold the power button for 3 Seconds

While continuing to hold the Power button, press the home button as well for 10 seconds

While holding down the home button, release the power button for another 10 seconds

iTunes should now detect the iPod in recovery mode, press OK, and restore your iPod. you may now release the buttons. If you have not reached this point, then you have not entered DFU Mode DFU Mode Good Luck and I hope this will help.

There is a small button, next to the camera. Use a small safety pin or anything small enough to fit in the hole, (sewing needle), and poke it in the hole and it will be reseted. However, your iPod or iPhone must be FULLY CHARGED, in order for this to work. Thank you, and I encourage you to try this, because it worked for my iPod touch 4g.

How to Undisable your Ipod, Ipad, etc.

I have had the same problem, many times. I usually call apple and it sends me to "support". Then I would tell them whats wrong and they sit there with you and go through it with you.Or, If you have a computer download itunes and login. Then plug your ipod or whatever you have and hold the power and home button down for about 15 seconds, the little apple will come up but just keep holding it down. After a few seconds a new screen will then pop up and it has the itunes logo with a little picture of a plug on it. When you get to that screen let go and that screen should stay on. Then, on your computer the option to Restore or Update, will pop up.Choose Restore. Another screen will pop up on your computer then and it will yes like do you want to do this and stuff, so then click yes and it should have a factory reset that happens on your ipod. Then your ipod will be undisabled. You have to reset the language and reset it up. And you have to relogin to itunes. The bad thing is if you never backed up your account, then you will have nothing left. But if you did back it up, whatever you have on your product will be whatever you had when you backed it up.If that doesnt do the trick then I would call apple and go through it with them.
