Answer to: Disabled iPod is not recognized by my computer or iTunesI'm posting this because I've tried everything to to fix my iPod 5. When its turned on the same message comes up, "iPod is disabled connect to iTunes." When I connected it it said "iPod... is disabled... to connect to iTunes input password on iPod..." Thing is the iPod wouldn't let me put in a password... -__- LONG STORY SHORT I downloaded Tenorshare ReiBoot on my mac to force a reboot and it actually worked! The only thing is you need to know the iTunes account and password that was originally used to set up the iPod/iPhone/iPad. I don't believe anything else works.
