I keep lowering my "bit rate" and "max bit rate", but everytime...no import. Frustrating considering I have to wait hours for this.

I've found my success rate improves if I compress it into MPEG-2 format first, using Compressor, then import the compressed file into DVD SP.
Go figure...thats another problem. Compressor doesnt launch on my FCP.
Wheres the emoticon for pulling my hair out?

You should always do this as DVD Stdio pro can't handle all types of footage (i think it balks @ HD footage from memory) whereas compressor can handle basically all formats etc.
Once in compressor you have a lot more ability to modulate the compression.
Also, if it still gives you an issues, break the larger clip (dunno how long your movie is) into smaller movie files and bring them in individually. Sometimes compressors/mac will just run out of memory availible for the tasks at hand on a larger clip. Other issues may have to do with whether you're reading/writing from an external hard drive which is FAT formatted, but that's another discussion.
