While I was restoring a backup from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2012. This is the error I'm receiving currently:

Msg 3169, Level 16, State 1, Server FF101, Line 1
The database was backed up on a server running version 8.00.0760. That version is incompatible with this server, which is running version 11.00.3128. Either restore the database on a server that supports the backup, or use a backup that is compatible with this server.


Has anyone seen this message before? What can I do about it?
