We can only help you restore it (which wipes all the data on it, including the passcode).

Since we have absolutely no way to confirm that the iPod isn't stolen (we aren't necessarily calling you a thief, this is just the state stolen iPods end up in), all we can tell you to do is connect it to the computer it's synced with and enter the passcode when it prompts for it (it'll remove the "disabled" message and allow passcode attempts).

Those iTunes errors may mean that your hosts file is incorrect. See this guide to fixing restore errors:

You have TinyUmbrella installed and it's set to edit your hosts file, so the restore is trying to use saurik's servers to verify the firmware instead of Apple's servers. This can cause error 3194, 16xx, 21, "not eligible for requested build", and other errors. (To fix it: open TinyUmbrella, look under the Advanced tab, uncheck "Set hosts to Cydia", and quit TinyUmbrella. If you've done that and still shows the Cydia homepage instead of an Apple page like this, you need to fix your hosts file by editing it directly. See this guide for fixing error 3194 for more details.)
