High Quality Camera, what software needed?

I attached an HQ camera to an RPI3 that had one of the original cameras attached to it and was working fine. I get nothing from the new one. I tried updating it as the Raspian is quite old but it made no difference. Is the camera a drop in replacement or does it need new firmware or the latest Buster to make it work? It is hard for me to insert a new SD card, so I can’t easily try the latest.
