I'm willing to pay a reasonable rate to have somebody read each of these in, convert them to .ISO files or some other reasonable format, and either make them downloadable or put them on a thumb drive.

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.
