Converting to native format on Win64

I have a set of SAS datasets which were created on a Windows 32 machine (I think). I want to make copies of the files in native Windows 64 bit format. How can I do this? I thought the following would work (running on the Win64 machine)

libname oldfiles "folder";

libname newfiles v9 "folder";

proc datasets;

  copy in=oldfiles out=newfiles;

run;quit;

but this just copies the files, keeping their previous format.
