Procurve 8000m & 3400cl connectivity problems....

We have a Procurve 8000M as our main network backbone switch and have purchased a 3400cl-48G switch to go in our data center. I an trying to connect the switches together using a GB connection. The modules I purchased are as follows: J4113A (for the 8000M) and J4858A (for the 3400). I have updated to the latest firmware for both switches and still can't get them to connect. I have verified that my cable is good and my mini GBIC cards are good. I just can't get the 8000M to connect to the 3400. If I use a 10/100 twisted pair connection they connect just fine also. What could I be doing wrong? It does not seem to me that it should be that difficult. Please help!!!!

I called HP and they told me that I had to set the 8000M card to auto detect and then they connected right up.
