Do not do it. DAT8 is SE device, vs80 is LVD device. If you'll manage to connect them togather then whole bus will become SE and vs80 will not be streaming because SE bus is too slow for it. This means that vs80's heads will be worn (damaged) prematurely

You can cascase DAT8s and DAT24. You should not cascase them with vs80. Connect vs80 to 29160 adapter, see http://www.hp.com/cposupport/information_storage/support_doc/lpg50063.html
