Blacks are Grey (color managment issue?)

I placed an illustrator file into my PSD. Using CS3 for both. The 100% black that was in my AI file is reading 85% in the PSD. Now, If I copy and paste the art out of the AI file, it will paste at 100% black.

I'm thinking this may be a color management issue but it looks like I have both set up the same way unless I missed something.

Any ideas?

Are you working in cmyk in Illustrator and rgb in Photoshop? That can cause the problem you described. Check your colour handling/conversion settings and or ensure you are using rgb in Illustrator.
