    sorry, I forgot to put what it said. This is what it said, "iTunes could not connect to the Ipod because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the iPod before it can be used with iTunes"

    Try connecting the iPod touch to the computer you normally sync it with.

    This article: provides details about the passcode lock feature.

    If you cannot remember the passcode or don't have access to the computer that the iPod is normally synced with, you can restore it from recovery mode and set it up as a new device without any data. This article: will walk you through restoring from recovery mode.
