Is there somebody out there who will convert my PRODOS data disks (text programing in LOGO) on floppies to CD's that will run on my MAC? I do not have my disk drives or my IIe anymore.

To start, take a look at this thread.

What is your expectation of the end result? Do you want to extract just the text (I assume LOGO source code) files in order to read it? Unless you have a LOGO interpreter on your Mac, I don't think there's going to be a lot of running happening. Though you will be able to view and edit like any other text file.

Or, do you want to extract whole-disk images so you can use an emulator like
Sweet16 or Virtual II?

LOGO interpreter for OS X

Seems quite nice if you're into LOGO, but you might already have a LOGO interpreter.

Converting LOGO Program Disks to MAC

I have a LOGO interpreter running on my MAC. I was hoping that I could just read the program into it and run it without the need for an emulator.

Converting LOGO DATA Disks to MAC

My problem is that I have about 10 data floppies that I would like to have put on a CD so I can get them into my MAC LOGO program but have no way to convert them onto a CD since I no longer have my IIe or floppy drives.

If you don't find a kind soul to do the transfer/extraction for free, check here: http://retrofloppy.com.
