I'm not sure if it's a stock one, but it says 12V 3.3A 40W CONT.

If the problem is capacity of 12V power line, larger power supply
won't have the problem. If it's caused by shortage of 12V-to-5V
regulator on the motherboard, replacing adapter won't help so much.
(anyway I should replace my IDE drive with less power one ;-)

I think CF would be probed as standard IDE drives, but
I'm not sure if the firmware will recognize it properly.

For a quick test, you might be able to put your CF as primary slave
on cable of your working (master) IDE disk.
