Write Media Error

I have just upgraded from a compaq 1600 running netware 5, arcserveIT 6.6 and a single drive in TL881 to a Proliant 380 plus extra drive in library. Since extra drive added backup no longer works, I get E1016 "write media error" and "failed to position media". The throughput when job starts begins at approx 30,000kb/mins and plummets to 700 kb/mins then job dies. Please help, signed,desperate of Edinburgh.
