Get DVR-MS files naturally supported by Final Cut 6, 7 and X
"I needed to edit dvr-ms files, which I could not open with any professional software. It was from a Canon HDV camcorder / ingested into a PC via some standard Windows software. The software which helped me to at least trim the videos and save them in original HDV mpeg2 with an .mpg container was Video Redo, which I had to use in virtual Windows. I would appreciate if the software would be able just to rewrap the dvr-ms (and other) files into another Final Cut Pro friendly container
. It would be good if there is a Mac oriented app available…"

The format is by no means intended for editing in Final Cut Pro.
