no - unfortunately FDO does not support DWG files --> see

(item 6)

I guess Autodesk regards DWG as their "crown jewels" and therefore does
not support OS developement around DWG.

There is a FDO/OGR bridge, but unless FDO has some advantages over OGR -
why should one use it? DWG support in FDO would be one reason to look
into FDO.
