The only workaround to a lost iPod passcode is to Restore the iPod (a simple reset won't be enough). If you can't get iTunes to recognize the iPod for a Restore, try the steps in this video. If iTunes is refusing to Restore, post again with the exact error message iTunes is giving you.

Actually, if the ipod is jailbroken, the password can be deleted using a program like iPhoneBrowser (Windows) or a Mac equivalent.
Here is a video showing how:
How To Remove Passcode From Iphone Or Ipod Touch - Video
Basically, you delete a file called keychain-2.db from the /var/Keychains folder.
