SQL Server won't restore - versioning issue?

Hi there - I've been an SQLBackup user for years and never had an issue (thank you!) but today I tried to copy a database from a production environment to a development environment and the restore failed with a

"RESTORE FILELIST is terminating abnormally"
"the media family on device" .... "is incorrectly formed"

this update is going from an SQL Server 2008 environment to 2005 - is that my issue (forum searching would suggest it is)?  I don't think I've attempted to do a restore from this production setup to the dev. setup before (not sure though)....

thanks for your help!
