My son forgot his iphone screen lock password and had disabled his iphone5.  I followed directions online to "restore" the device by connecting to itunes and attempting to restore the device. The process took about 60 minutes through itunes and then didn't work when it was finished. Any idea what I am doing wrong.

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased, that is the way it works.

    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.
