So I would expect all you need to do is make an image
copy of the disk.
I'm trying to avoid the actual task of loading the CD, waiting for
the computer to read all the bits, eject the CD, rename the file,
load the next CD, etc.
I want to send a stack of disks someplace, have somebody else do that
3-4 dozen times, and send the disks backs with a thumb drive
containing all the ISO files.

Does anybody know of such a service? I can find lots of services
audio CD's into MP3 files, but nothing that
specifically handles data CD-ROMs.
Any leads most appreciated. Please reply directly, as I don't
I thought a CD-ROM (data CD) *is* an ISO image. So I would expect
all you need to do is make an image copy of the disk. On Unix
systems that's trivial, just use the "dd" command to copy
/dev/whatever to myfile.iso.
