    The procedure is as follows:
    Right-click databases -> Restore Database
    I mark 'from device', click the '...' button & select 'File' in the dropdown, then brows to the file itself. Under 'select the backup sets to restore' I check the only checkbox there, then in the 'To Database' I select the name of the database in the file (a new DB name appears there as you select the file).

    Then I press OK and receive the error message in the attached file.
    I need to be able to complete the import.

    Sorry for taking so long to respond.
    In fact, the problem can be solved very easily: the DB should be restored on an SQL Server 2000, then you create a database with the name you need on an SQL Server 2005 and perform an 'Import Data' from the SQL Server 2000.....

    Guess I'm the last person in the world to make this great discovery, but, well....
    Thanks for trying to help : )
