This message tends to show up when you are trying to restore a database that was created with a newer version of SQL Server. The format of the files has changed, and the problem is not interpreted correctly, bringing up a message that has nothing to do with the real problem.

Are you sure that your database was backed up from a 2005 edition of SQL Server?
