Which program is that ? If your computer runs on Windows, perhaps the HDD model is stored in a registry key, which you could simply edit to replace it with the current model... Open regedit and do a search with the serial number from the former drive.
Or perhaps you could explain the issue to the developper and get a new license for the new drive...

If you do want to pay ...

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Drive-ID-Passp ... 2674160463

Also there is a do-it-yourself way ... But WDMarvel and it will change the serial and model of your drive ....

But it will be way more expensive than using that eBay service...

Regards.
