Here is the deal, I got a nasty virus on my computer so I backed my Itunes up on my Ipod, note this includes my account and my wifes. A few days later my 10 year old daughter decided to take my ipod to school and proceeded to try to get into it until it locked itself.Everything that I can find online says that I have to wipe it out and start fresh. Problem is that with both accounts on it, I'm going to lose $400-$500 worth of music. Is there any way I can get this back, or am I screwed?

For how to restore:
iTunes: Restoring iOS software
To restore from backup see:
iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes       
If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        
If problem what happens or does not happen and when in the instructions? When you successfully get the iPod in recovery mode and connect to computer iTunes should say it found an iPod in recovery mode.
