Heya

A friend asked me to retrieve music off their broken iPod Touch. I have tried various freeware programs, but they all say I need to enter the passcode. I can't enter the passcode because the touchscreen is completely unresponsive. Any ideas on how to get around this, or to unlock it through USB?

Ok...you have been sitting here for a couple days. The odds of me helpng are slim. Am curious, what do you see when it's plugged into the computer via USB ?

I have a few ideas. First, I'm assuming you know the password. 

What happens when you plug it in? Is it only the screen that's broken? I might be able to help. It might be a stretch though.

I think it's a crazy problem. You can try some iOS data recovery tool. It is not free but best in the industry.

If the drive in the pod is still working, You could try Puppy Linux.

 

1 Get a copy of Puppy Linux. Download latest Puppy Linux release

2 Burn it to CD/DVD and boot your PC into Linux.

3 Plug in the pod via USB and a box should pop up on your screen( Kinda like when you plug a USB stick into Windows) that allows you to browse the drive in the pod like any other drive, Then you can copy n paste the music to what ever.

As long as the iPod is readible by a computer you can use a product such as iExplorer to move the data from a Touch/iPhone into a local folder or into iTunes.
