Because root has access to everything, I suppose, just like on every
other traditional Unix-ish system. Look at the permissions on /dev/sg*
(or /dev/scsi/hostX/busY/targetZ/lunN/generic, if you're using devfs),
and make sure that the user you're ripping as has permission to to read
and write to that device. (Ripping with SCSI drives is done by issuing
raw SCSI commands - you're using IDE-SCSI, so same thing applies.)
