Secondary EGT expander not recognized

I have a Car Data recorder purchased new in 2010. I am running 2 RPM and 3 EGT. I have the system set up and everything is working well except that I cannot get the recorder to recognize the secondary EGT expander. There is a code on the expander, "2" and I am going into the "Configure Secondary Expanders" window and selecting "Secondary Thermocouple Expander, ID 2" from the drop-down menu. I have done this numerous times in all four drop-down menus one at a time and all together, re-started the software, swapped the position of the expander physically from the "Thermo" to "G-Force" ports on the recorder, swapped all three thermocouples from the primary to secondary expanders (they all read in either channel of the primary expander) and everything else I can think of. When I go to the "choose parameters to log" window the Secondary Expander Temp "C" & "D" are grey and cannot be selected. I also tried the "I have an Expander without an ID Label" button, followed the directions and failed to get an ID for the secondary expander.... any thoughts?
