    Moving from 2005 to 2008 is easy. Backup and restore or detach then attach, then life is good.

    Going from 2008 back to 2005 is much harder.

    Transferring databases from SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2005 is not possible with standard backup and restore facilities.

    There is a solution however, see:
    Restore a SQL Server 2008 Database into SQL Server 2005

    Have a nice day!
