Without proper drivers the piece of hardware is absolutely of no use whatsoever and will not properly communicate with your computer system. You will have to have the right drivers actually installed on your PC so you are able to operate the hardware device.
Pretty much all devices need to have drivers downloaded to the computer and then installed onto the operating system in order for the devices to be used. These devices can be a printer, hard drive, cell phone or hundreds of other devices that are able to be connected to your system by way of plugging in a cable or simply directly plugging it in to the motherboard.

If it doesn't state that it's 32-bit or 64-bit then you can assume it's 32-bit.)
