There is no backward compatibility with solidworks. As you have found out you will only be able to open non-intelligent files that are exported out with little options for you unless the file can be recreated with featureworks.
As far as I know, SW is not backward compatible, that is, you can't convert from a newer version of a file (08) to an older version (06). If you have FeatureWorks, you can use it to attempt to recognize the features of the imported part.
Troy, Is "Non intelligent files" the politically correct way of saying dumb solid.
