Default SD mod for X5L, successful, but strange things happened

I own my X5L since 2007, and installed rockbox (with dual boot) 1 week after I got it. Last week, I realize that the HDD inside X5L is defective after replacing the batteries, I followed the steps taken by Razorblader:

Apart from the SD card I used (I'm using a Trendcend 4GB class 6 SDHC), I'm using "parts with exactly the same look as Razorblader", but I formatted the card with partition type set to "0x0b", which is also a FAT32 partition type, my X5L finally boots up, and something strange happened afterwards.......

1. I can still boot into official firmware, but some folders were not shown in the player, including the "MUSIC" folder.

2. I can boot to rockbox and play music, but I cannot boot it up again (for both rockbox and official firmware) after it is powered down for 15 minutes unless:
a) Unplug and reconnect the CF-IDE adaptor
b) Plug in the subpack with USB cable connected to the computer
c) Plug in the subpack with charger

3. I tried to update the firmware, but my X5L shows no response to the firmware file inside the "FIRMWARE" folder when the charger is plugged in at the first 10+ trials. After updating the latest version of rockbox bootloader (no dual boot), the problem mentioned in (2) remains.

Could anyone tell me what exactly the problem is?
