When you say "import" and "DVD"
what exactly do You mean?
Is it a data DVD with quicktime movies
on it, in which case you can just copy the
files to Your HD.

In most cases though, video DVD's contain .VOB files
that are far more than just video files - they
contain the video (for different angles etc...),
audio (often with different encodings etc...), subtitles,
menu items, all kinds of stuff.

To get the video off of a such a disk You should use
a seperate program, like 0sex for example:

... and this is where we step into the vast realm
of DVD ripping which I will not cover in this reply... : )

Even then, the MPEG2 video file (the one with ends with
.m2v) can't be imported into Premiere directly, You'd have to
transcode it to something Quicktime understands (without
the mpeg2 component to be precise)

For this I'd use Diva:

Hope this helps,
