Using OSB 64bit to backup Oracle 32bit is possible?

Hi all,
I'm trying to backup database to tape using OSB.

Oracle Database Version: Oracle10gR2 Standard Edition 32bit
Oracle Secure Backup Version: 64bit
S.O.: Windows 2008 R2 Standard 64bit

But I'm getting the following error:

RMAN> run
2> {
3> allocate channel c1 type sbt;
4> backup database;
5> }

using target database control file instead of recovery catalog
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03009: failure of allocate command on c1 channel at 05/15/2013 15:35:36
ORA-19554: error allocating device, device type: SBT_TAPE, device name:
ORA-27211: Failed to load Media Management Library

Could anybody help with this issue?
I think this happens because OSB architecture is 64bit while RDBMS architecture is 32bit. Can you confirm for me?
Thanks in advance.
