According to Apples support links you need to hook it up to the computer that it was set up on in order to unlock it. If you no longer have that computer you will need to reset up and restore the iPod from your current mac.

Take care

Toggle the "Hold" switch. Move the switch from "Off" to "Hold" and back to "Off" again.

Press and hold the "Menu" and "Select" buttons until the Apple logo appears. This may take up to 10 seconds, so be patient.

Release the buttons one the Apple logo appears and allow your iPod Classic to restart

Dejalo que se agote la batería, luego lo puedes cargar y funcinará perfectamente, me sucedió un par de veces...
