    If you've forgotten the passcode to unlock the iPod then as it's not stored anywhere you will need to reset the iPod : connect it to the computer that you normally sync to and you should then be able to reset the iPod and restore/re-sync your content to it (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212) - you may need to put the iPod into recovery mode in order to be able to reset it : http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808


    If you do it via a computer that it's not synced, and which therefore doesn't have a backup on it, then :

    If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present.
