Why are you going backwards to 2005?

2008 one is online one, 2005 one is for testing ,I just want to Synchronize the database.

Just upgrade your testing SQL and you can save a lot of hassle.

As you are aware that there is no backward compatibilty from sql server 2008 to 2005.

The only option is (which you already tried) to script the complete database and generate insert scripts to migrate data to sql server 2005.

Once this is done, you can do the data comparision using any comparison tool to validate.
