Problems with slow response and incomplete loading of program guide

I have an RCA DirecTV DVR40 series 2. I ordered a replacement drive and installed it over the weekend. I was able to set it up so that it successfully made the test calls and the daily call. However it loaded only 1 day of the program guide. It was connected over 3 hours. It also responded extremely slowy when I tried to pick a program to record.

I do not have a network that I am trying to connect.

I also noticed that the strapping on the drives was different. The old drive was strapped for CS enable and the replacment drive was strapped for Master.

Any suggestions? Can this drive be installed in addition to the one that is in the receiver?
