So try going into the games settings and forcing the video mode to match your system. That fixed it when it happened to me.
    I will try that and I will try using a better SD card I have. I also thought that since its an emulation software some games could run slow anyway. Most emulation softwares aren't an exact science. Like take the DS emulation for the Android platform.

    It's not emulation, with Dios Mios it simply tricks the disc drive into thinking it's reading from the disc drive when it's really reading from the SD or USB port.

    The reason some games run slow or buggy with DM is because it's Dios Mios is a custom MIOS file, like all Homebrew it isn't perfect.

    I stand corrected lol. Well anyway I used a different SD Card. I was using a regular 8gb scandisk now I am using a 8gb Class 6 Ultra Sandisk. I also had it force NTSC. It seems to have fixed the problem. Although I am not sure if it was the new SD card or the force NTSC that fixed it, but it was one of the two or both together. Everything runs smoothly now. I guess I will just stick with the SD card and Devolution for the Gamecube games.

    Thank you so much SNES_Master and DiskMurderer for all the help you've given me in the thread.

    Why wouldn't you just use some software to create a backup like the Game Backup System and then just run it from a hard drive? I think you should be able to run GC ISOs with the pretty much standard mods?

    For GC games you need to have Dios Mios full or Lite (which is a custom MIOS file) installed to the systems NAND or have Devolution (either the boot.dol or loader.bin) on the SD card, that is the only way to run GC game ISO from SD/USB.
