I just went through this upgrade last week-end.  Same as you I was on 
V3R1 with the same cum tape applied.  I had no problems with any save 
options.  Just make sure you follow the road map completely.  Get the 
upgrade assistant for your V3R1 system and also make sure you order 
the upgrade assistant for V3R7 cuz you will need it.  The ptf did not 
automatically come with the new box.  Make sure you do a reclaim 
storage on your old system before upgrade weekend also.  The only 
problem I had was that some of my logical files did not come over to 
the new box for some reason??  It went real well just takes a long 
time.

Good Luck!
