Autochanger 1/8 Ultrium 1: doesn't autoload tapes

I'm ussing BrightStor ARCserve v11 and I can format a tape, but the backups doesn't start. All the time they were asking for tapes.

I have seen in the CONFIGURATION menu of the lcd, that is missing the options 'autoload mode' and 'circular mode'. Is it in relation with?

This is the cause:

Random mode is the normal operating mode when a backup software
application is being used. In random mode, the autoloader loads tape into the
22
drive when it receives the appropriate commands from software. To use this
mode, your backup software must support autoloaders. This support often
requires an autoloader/library software module to be installed.

Sequential mode is used when autoloader software is not available. In
sequential mode, the auto-loader loads and unloads tapes automatically. The
operator specifies which tape is to be loaded first by using the autoloader
Operator's Panel controls. (For more information on loading cartridges, see
â Loading and Unloading a Cartridge.â ) When the first tape is full or unloaded,
the autoloader removes the tape from the drive automatically, returns it to its
original slot, and loads another tape in the next higher numbered slot that is
available. For additional control over loading tapes in sequential mode, you
can set Circular and Auto-load options from the autoloaderâ s fro
