I have a 2.0 USB to sata/ide drive that you can read a hard drive on your computer as another drive. Can you use a 8.16, or 32 bit hard drive on a 64 bit machine or do they have to be the same?
Leone, hard drives are not 64 or 32 bit systems. Those terms only apply to operating systems. A hard drive is a piece of hardware. If you remove a hard drive from an old computer to use as an external drive, it doesn’t matter if the computer it came from has a 64 or 32 bit system.
