How to Re-Code BMW DSP Radio Amplifier?

I bought a used BMW DSP Radio Amplifier from EBay for my X5 that was in a BMW 7 series, I now need to re-code the amp for the X5. Does anyone know the steps to do it? My mechanic has a computer for the car but can't find where to re-code the amp on his computer. Does anyone know which menus he has to go into to do this? (There is no dealer where I live.)

The X5 is 2001 and the amp came from a 1997 740il BMW. I put the amp in and the sound is very low and sounds bad. I read that the amp has to be coded for my X5 and it will sound ok once coded. It's the same Amp I had before and the same model number.

Why did you replace the amp in the first place?

Water had got into the trunk and shorted out the amp.
