So I filmed my footage at 30fps but wanted to conform it to 24fps and edit with that. I didn't know how to do that at the time, so I created the apple prores file of the 30fps footage and imported that to final cut. I'm finished editing, and I've now figured out how to conform the files to 24fps using cinema tools. I conformed the files to 24fps and am now trying to reconnect the conformed files to the clips in my timeline, but i'm getting this error message "Some attributes of one or more of the files you have chosen do not match the attributes of the original. This may cause problems within the sequences that are dependent on them. The attributes that differed are as follows: -Media Start and End" every time i try.
My question is, is there anyway to change the files in my timeline to the conformed files without having to begin my editing again?

You did a bad thing. Editing, finishing, then changing the frame rate of your masters. FCP cannot reconnect to media with differing frame rates. Because the duration of the footage is different, and the frame rate is different. The footage has the same amount of frames..., but now they play at a different frame rate, so the duration is different. You'll have to re-edit with the new masters.
But...RECONFORM...that changes the frame rate, as well as the speed in which they play. 30fps conformed to 24fps will play in slight slow motion. If you want the footage to play at a different frame rate, but the same speed...normal speed...you need to use Compressor.
