    Months ago, i dropped my Ipod Touch, and it got dented, the sleep button was dented! Now, my bro thought it would be funny to disable it for 60 minutes, now he did it to many times thus disabling it!

    The dented sleep button DOES NOT work, im asking if i can restore it? because the disabled thing tells me to connect to itunes, i connect. It tells me i cant because i dont have the password put in! :(

    I think we are all missing why can't you get into your iPod? Do you not know the passcode?

    According to what I've read on Apple's site, you should be able to restore without the passcode.

    There is a method to force iTunes to restore a device (putting it in DFU mode) but that requires being able to press the home button.

    He said that his brother is the one who disabled it, probably by typing in the wrong passcode on purpose a bunch of times. If you do it enough it will lock the device until you restore it.

    1. Guys, if he restores it, he can't turn it on
    2. Can't put it in DFU because his sleep button is broken
    3. If he does restore it, and it restores and turns on after restoration, he has to keep his iPod battery on the whole time.

    ITunes wants me to put my pass-code in before i can sync/restore, But i cant because it doesn't give me the pass-code numbers. In one of the pictures above you can see what the ipod says. It says "DISABLED Connect to ITunes" I connect to itunes it says "You need to put your pass-code in before you can sync/restore try again?" But i can't put the pass-code in if i cant see the numbers! So i'm asking if i can restore it somehow WITHOUT having to use the sleep/wake button

    And you've tried right-clicking on the iPod in the iTunes sidebar on the left? There might be a restore option there.
