change the permissions on /dev/hdd to 666 or add yourself to the disk

there is an option in the "Write Tracks" screen, after you have accepted
track layout, on the right hand side about halfway down called "Write
mode" which has a drop down menu.

not sure what is wrong there. did you select a directory for storing
ripped tracks in the config of xcdroast?

if you are using a 2.4 kernel you can use the ide-scsi module to
interface with the writer. pass the parameters to the kernel at boot
if you are using a 2.6 kernel the module is now named ide-cd. xcdroast
seems to complain if you are using this interface but it makes no
difference as far as i've found.
