Cool Converting Gemstar books

Hello all,
I'm in the process of transferring all my books to calibre, and have come across a couple of Gemstar books. I don't see where calibre can import this file type. Can anyone suggest a program to covert it to a "modern" format, or teach me how to get it into calibre?

Steve, do they have DRM? I can't remember if the Gemstar books are RB or IMP, but I'm pretty sure there's a converter, but I can't remember if it'll break the Gemstar DRM.

I'm not sure if they're DRM or not, but I've got archive files (.rar) with 29 .htm files and 1 .opf files. I've tried opening the htm files, and they look incomplete to me; for example, there are no links the the chapters on the TOC.htm file.

Thanks!

You should probably post this in the format workshop thread. This thread is for helping you with the things that calibre does do.
