What can I do, iPad disabled/lockout and iTunes keeps asking for password, I cannot restore...iTunes grays out backup and restore but my iPad and iPod shows on Apple etc..???

Try and force iPad into Recovery Mode:
1. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
2. Connect USB cable to computer, leave the other end alone
3. Press and hold the Home button down and connect the docking end of cable to iPad
4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect To iTune" screen
5. Release the Home button
6. Open iTune
7. You should see "iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode"
8. Use iTune to restore iPad
Note: You need to be patient and repeat the above many times to recover your iPad

    You aren't going to be able to delete it without the correct password.  If it's your ID, you can reset the password as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5625.  If it isn't your ID, you will have to get the password for the person who owns the ID.  There's no way around this and no one else can help.

    Trying to buy, download songs on iTunes and keeps asking for password for the account.  Entering the password correctly but it keeps asking for password.  Have downloaded hundreds of songs before, first time this has happend.  Why?
    Thanks.

    Hi, Trex8.
    There are a couple things that you can try to resolve this issue.  First, I would recommend processing any updates needed to the computer and iTunes.  You can check for updates in iTunes by selecting the help menu and check for updates.  If iTunes is on the current version, see the article below. 
    iTunes repeatedly prompts to authorize computer to play iTunes Store purchases

    Make sure to test the results after each troubleshooting step processed.
