Tape status poor after backup

I have tape library HP MSL 2024, DP 6.0, Windows 2003 r2, LSI Adapter Ultra320 SCSI.
After backup in drive 1 status tape is poor and backup very slow. After verify status good.
In drive 2 all normal.
Testing in L&TT show this warning:
The current SCSI configuration is likely to be limiting the performance of the drive.
Please check that your HBA is the correct type for the drive and that the cabling is good.
The SCSI configuration referenced is the one for which device analysis was run and/or the support ticket was pulled.
If this is not via your backup server then you may not have an issue.
Current SCSI configuration\: narrow Recommended\: wide
Current SCSI transfer rate limited to\: 20 MB/sec. Recommended\: 160 MB/sec. or better.

Thanks for all ideas
