I did some for a friend recently. Had to use an older machine running OS9, save the files onto a flash drive then load them on a machine running OSX and burn CD's. It did not work in Classic, (for me). You must be running directly from a OS9 booted machine. I also did quite a bit of searching and could not find another work around.

I'm pretty sure that I accessed some shots on one of my Photo CD's since I've been on Mac OS X and it was probably the CS3 timeframe.
I can't remember exactly what I did, but I seem to remember using Bridge to browse the CD and grab the pics from one of the folders.
I'm not home now so I can't test this. However, like I said, it wasn't that long ago and I'm pretty sure I did it on my Mac Pro and I know that Mac OS 9 was NOT involved, so there had to be a way to do it at least within the last year.
---- You can never go wrong by doing the right thing.
I have a quite a few PhotoCDs from my days working at Meteor Photo, I'd hate for these to be useless, but I have the negatives for most of them. Graphic Converter seems to be able to open them, but only the low res files. It says to open 16 Base & 64 Base images to launch GraphicConverter under Rosetta on Intel Macs, how do I do this?
Rosetta (like the Rosetta Stone) is a translator-emulator. It's probably not worth the trouble. Try using GraphicConverter on a G4 or G5. Here's what Apple says about Rosetta:
New applications bearing the Universal symbol will run natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Mac computers. What about the applications you already own? Enter Rosetta. You’ll never see it, you’ll never configure it, you’ll never have to think about it. It’s built into Mac OS X to ensure that most of your existing applications live a long and fruitful life.
