Don't know iPod's password, how do i reboot the whole thing?

So i found an iPod touch over a year ago and no one ever claimed it so i'm keeping it. It has a password on it and i plugged it into my computer and opened iTunes hoping that i would be able to completely reboot the whole thing. I mean like delete everything off of it including the password and start all over with it.
Kind of like Jailbreaking but to jail break an iPod iTunes needs to be able to access the iPod, and mine isn't able to.
Help please!

When you plug it in does it say that it hasn't been synced with that computer before? If so there should be an option that says "sync with this iTunes account" or something along the lines of that. If it shows up on the side, like where playlists show up, click on it and click restore, then you can get buy whatever apps you want and sync your own music with it. Hope this helps :)

the person who owned it before me has the security setting set so that it disables the whole ipod for like a 5 year period!

Click the lock button at the top & home button at the same time for a few seconds! It'll restart your whole iPod :)

no... -_- that just TURNS IT OFF not reboots. there is a difference between rebooting and restarting.

It RESTARTS the WHOLE thing bud! I accidentally clicked both buttons not thinking, and it got rid of everything. I even had to reconnect it to iTunes so I could use it.
