Arcserve 11 and DLT VS80 performance

I have a Proliant server win2K running Arcseve v11. I had an internal DLT8000 drive which backups were working fine until it got faulty and we bought a new DLT VS80. After installation of internal VS80 drive the backups were teribly slow. We did the registry update of DefaultBlockFactor=7 Hex D_word and still same problem. What am I doing wrong? My Cartridge type under Arcseve Device properties is DAT. Is this correct? If not, how to change it?

Maybe it is down to the fact that the DLT VS80 is simply slower?

It has native sustained transfer rate of 3MB/s in comparison to 6MB/s for DLT8000.
