I got my AVCHDs 4 or 5 years ago via older links in a previous version of the Ultimate Introductory Guide. The SW rars extracted as you described. For the other two films, the rars extracted to a folder (e.g. ESB_v2.0_AVCHD) with the following:
- .iso file (an archive format containing the video + audio)
- .mds file (DVD format info for the corresponding iso)
- .txt file (“readme” info)
Hopefully, the newer links in the Guide gave you the same files?
If you have a PC, get hold of the free ImgBurn software for burning DVDs. Load the .iso file into “ImgBurn”, and it will automatically pick up the .mds file too and use the correct settings to burn the movie to DVD.
What you mustn’t do is burn the ESB_v2.0_AVCHD folder to DVD as a normal folder: this would just produce a data disc which cannot be read by a DVD player.
