Good Morning!

I have an unusual problem that I have not ever seen posted by
anyone anywhere. I am running Windows XP/SP3. I also have a
new and large (1 Tetra Bit) Sea Gate external hard drive with a lot of
video files on it. Since these files were all produced by a Windows
based Editor program that I know is not compatible with the new Windows 7 & 8 systems I would to have the ability to change these files from their current 32 bit format to 64 bit. Since I do not want to lose or destroy these files how can I make them available in the new OS, either Win 7 or 8 with a 64-bit platform?

Thanks for any help offered,

No conversion required. The files are just data, they don't care (or even know) whether the OS is 32-bit, 64-bit, 8-bit, etc.

Yes, ex_bubblehead but will these files open in a 64bit machine?
In other words, would I even see them?

Thanks for your reply,

Data files don't care. As long as you have software that will read and present the format it'll work just fine. Again, data files do not care about 32-bit vs. 64-bit.
