I have an 1:57 min project in FCP7 DVCPRO HD 720p60. 23.98. Sending it through compressor I get about 40 GB. Is this reasonable?
Compressing logic seems beyond my understanding. What settings for HD should I choose?

I can't even begin to imagine the setting in Compressor that would create a file that large for a 1:57 piece.

Export out of FCP self contained. Put in Compressor and select a preset for your target destination (Quicktime 7 for Web for example).

I want to create a HD product for DVD
right now I am sending it through compressor again and this is what shows up in inspector:

Name: DVCPRO HD 720p60
Description: DVCPRO HD 720p60 with audio pass-through
File Extension: mov
Estimated size: 95.88 GB
Audio Encoder
16-bit Integer (Big Endian), Stereo (L R), 48.000 kHz
Video Encoder
Format: QT
Width: 960
Height: 720
Pixel aspect ratio: HD (960x720)

Finally got editing down and now I face compression!!

I have an 1hr 50min film dvcpro720p60, sent to compressor it renders out at 95.96GB

The largest disc I can find is a blu-ray 50GB

What settings do I use to render it under 50 GB and retain HD?

You really need a basic primer on compression and I don't think a forum is the place for it. You don't seem to have a basic understanding of codecs and delivery. You need to get a good tutorial on Compressor and there are many.

DVD is standard def.
You need to know about making H.264 for Blu-ray which is Chapter 14 in Compressor manual. You can use the H.264 for Blu-ray template (Job Action). Alternately you can use the Share feature in Final Cut Pro which makes a Blu-ray disc with primitive menu. Toast will also make Blu-ray discs.
