I don't know about HAL, but those messages are from mount (probably
called from hald). It usually means wrong fs type (what is in fstab
for /dev/hdd and what is the filesystem on the CD? if you put 'auto' in
fstab it usually works for both iso and udf filesystems), that the CD is
blank, or that it is otherwise corrupted.

Have you tried mounting /dev/hdd manually?
