My boys each have an iPod that are linked to the same apple id.  One has locked themselves out and thier iPod is now disabled. I am trying to figure out how to reset it but I don't want to loose the things they have purchased.  So I tired to sink everything from the ipod that is not diabled to the itunes acct in hopes to be able to put it all back on the disabled iPod once I reset it.  It tells me that I need to authorize my computer. How do I do that?  Thanks

iPod touch, iOS 6

    If you're using Mac OS X, choose Store from the very top of the computer's screen and click on Authorize Computer.

    If you're using Windows, press the Alt and S keys and choose Authorize Computer.
