You will not able to read a MAC-CD on a normal PC. Why do you want to copy it via a PC and not via a MAC?

The only way I know is to have Windows NT Server with SFM (Service for Macintosh). Then you should be able to mount a PC-connected ZIP drive on the MAC and to copy your files from a MAC to the ZIP.

I want to do it via a PC because I have access to a PC with a CD and Zip drive.  The Mac only has a zip drive.  There are software programs available, such as Here&Now or TransMac, to do it but they are prohibitively expensive for my purposes.  I was hoping there was a cheaper alternative.

Buy an external CD-ROM drive for your Mac. You can get them for about $150.00 and you HAVE TO HAVE IT anymore.
