RedumpVerifier: Show an error when datfile lacks serials or versions

This happens if someone manually downloads a regular datfile from and puts it where Dolphin stores datfiles. Dolphin needs
"special" datfiles that contain fields for serials and versions.

Before this change, all discs (except Datel discs) would show up as
"Unknown disc" when using a regular datfile.
