You can restore from backup since the screen-lock passcode is not restored.
Disabled
Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.
iOS: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen                         
If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.                        
How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings        
For how to restore:
iTunes: Restoring iOS software
To restore from backup see:
iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes       
If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        
If problem what happens or does not happen and when in the instructions? When you successfully get the iPod in recovery mode and connect to computer iTunes should say it found an iPod in recovery mode.

  • How do you get music from your Itunes to your computer? im making a wedding video on windows movie maker but cant figure out how to get the bridal music off my ipod and onto my pc.

    Im making a wedding video and cant figure out how to get the bridal music off my itunes and onto my computer.. Im using the windows movie maker

    Marian,
    Let's be clear on one thing here. The manual setting is an iPod setting, not an iTunes one. So, once you've set it to manual (and you appear to have done that correctly), then you can connect it to any number of computers without changing that setting.
    "The grey thing occurs on one pc only"
    This is the thing that I don't understand, if your iPod is set to manual, then it shouldn't happen on any computer. If you connect the iPod that is set to manual to this pc, and then click on it in the source listing, then you would be looking at the songs on the iPod, and they should not be greyed out. When you connect to the "other pc" under these same circumstances, they are not greyed out?

  • TS2446 i cant remember the answers to my security questions.  i have reset my password and added the recovery email account but still cant figure out how to purchase new content. it asks me the same security questions. how do i fix this?

    i cant remember the answers to my security questions.  i have reset my password and added the recovery email account but still cant figure out how to purchase new content. it asks me the same security questions. i also have a temp pin. how do i fix this?

    If you've just added an address to your account then it will be an alternate/secondary email address, a rescue email address can only be added by answering 2 of your security questions. If you already had one on your account then go to https://appleid.apple.com/ and click 'Manage your Apple ID' on the right-hand side of that page and log into your account. Then click on 'Password and Security' on the left-hand side of that page and on the right-hand side you should see an option to send security question reset info to your rescue email address.
    If you don't have a rescue email addressthen you will need to contact iTunes Support / Apple to get the questions reset.
    Contacting Apple about account security : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699
    When they've been reset (and if you don't already have a rescue email address) you can then use the steps half-way down this page to add a rescue email address for potential future use : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5312

  • HT4623 i cant figure out how to update my ipod

    i cant figure out how to update my ipod touch from 4.2.7 to ios 7

    Connect your iPod to your computer and update via iTunes.
    iOS 4: Updating your device to iOS 5 or later
    If you iPOd has cameras it is a 4G and will go to 6.1.3. You need iTunes 10.7 or later on the computer
    Otherwise y have a 3G iPod. Those can go to 5.1.1 and you need iTunes 10.5 or later on the computer.
    If problem what exactly happens when you try?

  • HT1351 Got a used 4th gen nano, but i need to sync it. i can see it but i cant figure out how to authorize it

    Got a used 4th gen nano and I need to sync it with my library on my computer. I can see the ipod but i cant figure out how to authorize it

    You don't need to "authorize" it, unless you are trying to sync content that uses DRM (copy protection).  You probably just need to set up syncing.
    First, if the iTunes sidebar (along left side of window) is hidden, from the menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar.  The iPod appears in the sidebar, under DEVICES, when connected.
    Select the iPod in the sidebar.  The iPod's Summary screen is shown to the right.  Toward the top, there is a bar of buttons, starting with Summary.  Click on Music to the right of Summary.  This Music screen is where you tell iTunes how to sync songs to the iPod.
    Check the box for Sync Music.  If your iTunes music library is small enough to fit on the iPop's storage, you can choose to sync Entire music library.  Otherwise, choose to sync Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres.  From the lists below, select what you want to sync the iPod.  One convenient way to set this up is to create one or more playlists in your iTunes library, and put ALL of the songs you want on the iPod on those playlists.  (Or you can use existing playlists.)  Back on the iPod's Music screen, select (checkmark) those playlists under Playlists.  You can also select other items on those lists, as desired.
    When you click Apply, iTunes syncs the songs in your selections to the iPod.  Going forward, to update the iPod, just update those playlists in your iTunes library (add/remove songs).  The iPod does not need to be connected.  The next time you connect the iPod (or click Sync if already connected), iTunes updates the iPod with the same changes automatically.

  • HT1491 I have ten dollars in my account but i cant figure out how to use it to buy a cd?

    I have ten dollars in my account but i cant figure out how to use it to buy a cd?

    You can't.  The iTunes Store does not sell CDs.  The music it sells comes as downloadable music files.
    If that is what you want, just search in the Store for what you want, and then click Buy.  Note that the Store will collect sales tax.  The amount depends on where you live, but in most places, you cannot buy a $9.99 album for $10 since the sales tax will put you over.

  • I just downloaded the new itunes and i cant figure out how to update the apps on my iphone when im on my computer?

    I just downloaded the latest itunes and i cant figure out how to update my iphone apps on my computer now.  I go to the toolbar on the top and press search for updates and it tells me that the latest version of itunes is already downloaded or that there are no updates available at this time.  Previously, i would be able to go to the apps page on itunes and then press search for updates and then download all. Then I would sync with my phone and both phone and computer would be updated.  Now I can only update on the phone and I know Im going to encounter where it tells me the info for downloading is too large to do it on your phone, hence my first question.....where do I go to update my apps on my computer????

    While you're in itunes, with the leftside window open, click on Apps. Then, look across the top middle of your itunes screen. You will see several choices: All, Iphone/iPad Touch, Ipad, Ipod Games, List, and Updates. 
    Clicking on each of these gives you a different view. 
    When you select ALL you will see all of your apps. When you select Updates you sill see only the apps that need to be updated. When you are in Updates you will see the Update button in the lower right corner.
    Hope this helps.
