I have two raspberries (model 2 and model 3B+) and two sd cards. I wanted to swap the cards.
The card from model 2 is not recognised in model 3B+.
There is no green LED which indicates that the Pi cannot read from the sd card.
The other way around is working fine showing that it is not a problem of the cards or of the card slot.
Is there any big difference in architecture between the two models? I would imagine 32/64-bit but should a 32bit OS not also boot in model 3B+?
I bought the Model 2 in October 2015 and installed Noobs Jessy. I updated to stretch in 2019. It is a Model 2B.
SD cards are both from sandisk, 64GB and 8GB. The 8GB is working in both devices.
Everything is up-to-date:

I wonder why there is not even a single read (green light). Maybe it has something to do with the partition table.
Originally, my system was set up on the 8GB card. I then cloned this partition scheme to the 64GB card and enlarged the main partition to fully use the 64GB. I therefore had to move the partition which lays behind the main partion. This worked well with the 64GB card in my Model 2. Maybe Model 3 has a problem with it.
