http://support.microsoft.com/kb/833710 specific for SQL 2005 but, it looks like your  production envoriment is running latest SQL 2005 service pack than test envoriment.
upgrade the test environment and you will be able to restore

Any chance a MSSQL 2000 instance is running on the test box, and used in error instead of the 2005 one? All references to this error message point to MSSQL 2000 restoring a 2005 backup, or MSSQL servers with different Service Pack level.

Try to stop that MSSQL 2000 (temporary), and then restore. It should work then, or give an error about not being able to connect to the instance.

How are you doing the restore -- with the GUI?

Can we get screen shots?
