The additional features and data format in 2008 are not recognized by 2005, so it cannot restore a backup directly.

You cannot down version restore. you can restore to the same version or above.

>> for this you can detach your mdf and ldf file and attach to lower version.
>> you can script the schema's and run the script to new server and bcp out the data
>> you may try import and export (i have not checked this one)
>>  use dts/ssis to transfer
>>check for third party tools
