Problem restoring SQL DB

Feb 8, 2012 at 2:17 PM

I have downloaded the files and tried to install into different domain.  While going through the installation scripts and trying restore DB, it gives me SQL error:

The media family on device incorrectly formed.  SQL server cannot process the media family. 

RESTORE HEADERONLY is terminating abnormally.  (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 3241).

My DBA told me it's the SQL server version problem.  Mine is SQL 2008 R2 SP1 (10.50.2500).  Just wondering which version of SQL should I use?

Thanks in advance for any help.
