ArcGis 10.2.1 problem with raster SDE

I have installed arcgis 10.2.1 (Arceditor) on my pc with W7 64 bit.
It's all right but when I configure a spatial database connection with a geodb (SQL server 2005 with arcSDE 9.3)  I can't load in arcmap the rasters (mosaic orthophoto) ..... for vector layers I don't have problems.
In my organization I have also Arcgis 10.0 and I don't have any problems...with vectors and rasters
Can anyone help me?

10.2.1 will not support SQL Server 2005.

Above and beyond the lack of pre-2008 SQL-Server support in 10.2.x, you've
got two issues:
1) ArcGIS 9.3/9.3.1 is now in Retired support status
2) Storing rasters in databases is old-school

I suggest using the older tools to migrate all your 9.x data into 10.x geodatabases,
and look into raster datasets for the raster data.
