You will get this with every device that can read the ATIP info - you will have to use "hide cdr media" or a similar feature of any other program to play the game from such a drive. Apart from cdr's there are several dvd drives that can also read ATIP, i am not sure whetehr the toshiba can... still though the ATIP check aint your problem.
Since you update the game executable it is most certain that a new updated SD version has been introduced with it - that is why bulk asked you specifically to check the new executable with SD analyser.
In that is the case, which is the most probable, the current copy you have now is rendered useless, you will have to make a new one using the original game that you own, with the settings you used to make the previous one, and hopefully you will end up with a working backup again.
