Way 2. Reset iPod Touch to Factory Settings Without the Password via iTunes

If Way 1 doesn't resolve the issue, restoring your iPod from iTunes is another standard troubleshooting step. This will erase all data and content, including songs, videos, photos, and other information, and take your iPod to their factory condition. 

Step 1. Have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer. If you don't have one, just download it from Apple official website.  

Step 2. Connect your iPod to the computer. Then, iTunes will automatically detect your iPod. If not, you have to fix the "iPod not recognized by iTunes" issue manually.

Step 3. Select your iPod icon at the top of the screen. If you are asked for a passcode after connecting your iPod to your computer, or you've never synced your iPod with iTunes on the computer before, you can jump to Method 3 to put your iPod in DFU mode.

Step 4. Click the "Back Up Now" to create a backup of your iPod if you've never made one before. If you have created a backup, it's unnecessary to create another one.
