DC S3500 started reporting 4k sector sizes after firmware 0370. How to make it go back to 512 byte sectors?

We've ordered various DC S3500 SSDs and the ones with firmware before 0370 report a 512 byte sector size, but the ones with 0370 report a 4k sector size. This is causing a lot of issues for us. Is there any way to set a DC S3500 with firmware 0370 (or later) to go back to a 512 byte sector size? The release notes for 0370 suggest there might be (there's a line in there about supporting both sector sizes).

Hi jddimarco,

Sorry for the delay.

I have checked and the latest firmware the DC S3500 and S3700 both default to a 4KB 'physical sector size'. This is also known as 'advanced format' sector size.
