Do you have to render it in the Timeline? Sometimes clips need to be rendered in the Timeline for them to playback in real time. This happens with some DV footage. In the Viewer it lags, but after putting it into the Timeline and rendering it, it's fine. I think dv files are not the most compatible with FCP. If you could convert it to some other codec it may work better. Also, make sure your scratch disk is not targeted to your system drive.
