Sounds like iTunes needs to be re-installed. For fun, use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

What I would do is try downloading the newest version of Itunes. That should work or you can try and restoring it. If you want to try that route here is how t do it:
Open iTunes on your computer.
Connect your iPod to the computer using the USB cable.
When the device appears in iTunes, select the "Restore" button. You will have four options from which to choose. Restore uses the same version of iPod software. Restore 2 uses the same iPod software though an update is available. Restore 3 puts the newest version of iPod Shuffle software on your device. And restore 4 installs the latest version of software and updates the device.
Keep the iPod connected throughout the restore process.
Name your iPod after the restore is complete and sync your library with it again if you so choose.
It let you restore it and you still get "unable to sync as playlist on ipod has changed"? I think that the restore was an erase and install and complete re-Sync of it. I think you need to try the restore function again and make sure it completely re-syncs before trying to do anything with it.
I would go ahead and do a system restore - this is a separate method from the resetting all settings. The restore will delete all songs and hoepfully replace any key system files that may have been lost, just in case too many were loaded onto player initially.
that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes
and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
Open iTunes, and then connect iPod shuffle to your computer.
After a few moments, it will appear in the Source pane in iTunes.
Select your iPod shuffle in the Source pane and you will see information about it appear in the Settings tab of the main iTunes windows
The Version section tells you whether iPod shuffle is up to date or needs a newer version of the software.
the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore
options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest
iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the
first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is
completed, iTunes will present a message instructing you to leave iPod
shuffle connected to computer to complete restore process.
the stage 2 of the restore process, a green LED will flash once on iPod
shuffle, then amber and green LEDs will flash briefly, and finally the
amber LED will begin to flash continuously. It is critical that the iPod shuffle remains connected to the computer during this stage.
stage 2 of the restore process is complete, the iPod Setup Assistant
window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing
preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
