what’s happening is that the dae.bin file is different for everyone, so just having a specific response on the disc is no longer an option. topology is basically a physical scan of the disc so the correct response can be calculated on the fly for any challenges that your dae.bin would request. LT+2.0 cannot read discs with topology, you would need 3.0 for that. however if your drive doesn’t do the ap2.5 checks at all then it doesn’t matter if you had 2.0 or 3.0, or if your discs had topology or not. only way to know if your drive does the checks is to try a disc. you risk having your xval flagged but it seems like they aren’t really banning consoles for that anymore. who knows what they will do in the future?

short answer: if your drive does the checks then you need to have discs burned with topology and wait for hitachi LT+ 3.0 to be released. otherwise, if they work, keep playing.
