Replacement drive for FAS3240 512B/sect not 520B/sect


I am having trouble with a replacement disk on a FAS3240 (NetApp Release 8.2.3P4 7-Mode). I have replaced the bad disk but it appears that the replacement disk has been formatted at 512B instead of 520B. The replacement disk is a certified NetApp drive so I know it is originally from NetApp and has NetApp firmware. We did get this one from a third-party vendor because we are not currently under NetApp support. We have had the disk on the shelf too long to return it now so we are stuck with it. I uploaded the latest qual_devices files to both controllers just in case those are needed. I know the code version is old but it is what we are stuck with now. Is there a way to change the replacement disk to 520B?
