Default X5 60gb - probs with USB host and battery

Just got hold of a X5 60gb.Wondering if anyone had similar issues.( NB I KNOW THERE IS A SIMILAR THREAD AROUND BUT MY PROBLEM WITH USB IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT, and APOLOGIES if anything is repitition of available knowledge):-

1) Recognised as an external hard drive fine by my pc when I use the cradle but not when directly in the USB host port on the player ( yes I make sure USB host is switched on). At best I get a "USB mass storage device not recognised" on my PC.
Highly inconvenient as i have to take the cradle with me if I travel and use other computers. Is this normal?

2)Battery life is down to approx 4 hrs play. Anybody got ideas as to where and which batteries to buy( I'm in the UK) . And is replacement easy for a non-skilled person in electronics?

3) Thinking about replacing the hard drive too with a 80gb/100gb one - is this feasible for me .And which brand should i use? (also is this a job for an expert?)

I apreciate your time in reading this.Thanks
