autoloader 1/9 problem on W2K with /pae /3GB

Im having problem using my HP autoloader 1/9(updated firmware) on a w2k machine with 6GB memory, /pae and /3GB switch in the boot.ini.

My backup software (Omniback 4.10) can do a complete scan of media, can detect blank and OBII Foreign Tape successfully. But CANT format, import and do backup. The following are the errors I received :

- 90:52 Cannot read from device ([87]). The parameter is incorrect.

- 90:53 Cannot seek to requested position ([87]). The parameter is incorrect.

- 90:51 Cannot write to device ([87]) The parameter is incorrect.

Please take note that everything run smoothly whenever I remove the /pae and /3GB in the boot.ini. Unfortunately i need that boot.ini switches for my application.
