You need to fix the problem of not being recognized by iTunes.

Honestly if you have it in Disk Mode iTunes should recognize it if you open it while it was connected.

Here are some things to try:
1. make sure the cable is connected properly
2. try a different cable to make sure it is not the cable.
3. use a direct USB port, not a hub
4. check out Apple's help: iPod appears in Windows but not in iTunes

Once you resolve the connectivity issue, then you can restore it and everything will be wiped including the lock code.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

So you can see the iPod in Windows Explorer?

If not, try this one: iPod not recognized in 'My Computer' and in iTunes for Windows

You have to do all the steps. Don't skip around.
