    I am trying to
    import a 28 second clip from a DVD to imovie and get a "do not recognize format message.

    The DVD plays in iDVD fine.

    If the video is not copy protected you might try ATPM 12.03 - How To: Performing a Video Extraction. I used a disc burned from my TiVo but the process would be the same. I imported the files as DV format clips but I believe the current version of iTunes supports other formats.

    BTW The links in that article are for earlier versions of the software but seem to still work. They refer to the current versions now though.
