I would urge you to use a different approach.

Although the database backup files are compatible, and as such gbak
doesn't report an error, there are difference between IB (especially IB
v6.5+) and FB which make using backup/restore ill-advised.

I would have you extract the database metadata to a script, use the
script to generate an empty FB database and then use a datapump tool
(there are a number of free tools available) to move the data from IB to
