FCP doesn't mix frame rates well...not well at all. You will have to convert the "off frame rate" to the one you want...and outside of FCP.

First off...pick your MAIN frame rate. What do you want to export as? Final output frame rate.

Then...separate all the footage that isn't the same frame rate.

Media Manage COPY it to another location...with you have only the clips used in the sequence.

Use COMPRESSOR to convert that footage to the other frame rate. Settings depend on what you are converting from and to.

Manually recut the footage back into the sequence. Sorry, there is no way to relink when the frame rate differs.

It is best to deal with off frame rates BEFORE you edit. Because, as you can see, dealing with it after is a bit of a pain, and takes time and effort.
