Summary: Follow this guide you will know the easy way to convert DVD to Final Cut Pro with Prore codec for editing. 

My media is archived on DVD (24+) I used Sony DvdDurect to preserve the archive for processing in the future.  This is the future!  Using my MBP 2.6, 8g ram 512SSD FCPX and 2t LaCia HD, I want to convert to ProPres for importing to FCP with the least loss of quality.  I get a lot of promises but yours failed to load from the start.  For lack of tutorial I begin by down loading your program for Mac.  (Do not remember the program just one I found on the internet and it said for Mac or something like that.

In fact, Final Cut Pro cannot read any of these Video .TS files from a DVD.
