    My friend gave me some dvds of her daughters dance recitals to edit. I want to edit in final cut so I put the dvds on my computer using handbrake. When I tried importing them into final cut it said it does not support the framerate so I downloaded mpeg streamclip to convert them to DV. The dvd is about an hour long and it has taken the past 30 minutes to encode 2% of the video. Is this normal? if not, what am i doing wrong?

    Handbrake encoded them into a very compressed, not FCP friendly (as you found out) format. The more compressed format used the longer these things take because the computer has to do more work. You can use MPEG Streamclip to to convert the files directly off the DVD and it will be much better all around than using Handbrake.
