Version 661  is SQL Server 2008 and version 611  is SQL 2005, you cannot restore/ attach a SQL 2008 database to sql server 2005.

You may have the latest version of the SQL Server management studio, it doesnt mean that your server is on SQL 2014.
Run this statement after you connect to the server to get the actual version of sql server

SELECT @@Version, SERVERPROPERTY('Edition') AS Edition,
      SERVERPROPERTY('ProductVersion') AS ProductVersion,
      SERVERPROPERTY('ProductLevel') AS ProductLevel
