The 2011 version file (which is a 2010 format file) will first have to be opened in AutoCAD 2010, 11, or 12, and Saved as a 2004 format file.  Then AutoCAD 2005 will be able to open it. 


If you don't have a newer version of AutoCAD to perform the Save as operation you can do it with the free version of Autodesk TrueView using the built-in DWG TrueConvert software.
