To unlock your screen when you do not know the password, Plug in the ipod touch into your computer and open the itunes application. There it will begin to sync and it will unlock your ipod touch. You may than create a new code. This time write it down so you don't forget.

You probably stole the iPod, or else you wouldn't be asking this question. Nevertheless, I will answer it. Opening the iPod is disk drive mode should make it appear as a removable storage device. Then open it and go to a file called "_lock" and change the file name to "_unlock."

Dock the iPod to your computer, backup the songs, then reformat the iPod and put the music back on it. If you don't know the password, that's all you can do, short of sitting and guessing.

If you want to unlock the screen you will need to have the password, otherwise you will not be able to unlock it. You may have to reset the whole ipod and start off fresh. You will lose all information stored on the ipod unless it is saved on your computer as it should be.

Just restore your iPod's firmware. All your music and stuff is stored in iTunes or redownloadable from the store, so you can get it back.
