As a fellow Mac user I recomend the DriveWire package from Cloud-9. If
you have a Mac with a serial port (or even a USB based serial port for
thoes Macs without a native serial port). It works really well with Disk
Extended Color BASIC even better with OS-9. It take me about 30 seconds
to copy an entire disk from my CoCo to my Mac.

Well if you within driving distance of the SF Bay Area, I'd be glad help
you out! :)
