Backup and restore from 2008 - 2005 not working

i have an sql 2008 database that i am trying to backup then restore to a 205 database on another server.

I can back them up properly but when i try to restore them on another server i get an error message that says  

the media on device ...  is incorrectly formed

with the error message 3241

I can restore the backup on the same server without any errors (the one running sql 208)  i thought the problem might be that i was moving the backup file, so i shared the main folder where i backup from and tried doing that, still no luck.

I am using sql server management studio

If any one could offer any help it would be appreciated
