I tried putting the emulator on my system SSD, while the games were on a traditional storage HDD. This caused lagspikes to the point where it's almost unplayable. If I move the games to the SSD however it runs at 60fps without problems.
With limited room on my SSD is there any way to make this work? I'm embarrasingly bad at computers btw.
That's weird, I had a similar setup in the past but no such issues. You should check your HDD's SMART data to make sure it's functioning properly (I use HD Tune for this). Also try defrag
I have the same set up and its worked fine in my limited use. I have the iso on a usb2 external hd. if you are using a usb1 external that is not fast enough.
what kind of hd are you storing the games on?

running "wdidle3 /D" will fix this.
and its clearly not a caviar black..... only greens have this annoying 'intellipark' issue.
Yeah-- that sounds like a green drive, not a black.
Probably green then.
What's the "intellipark' issue"?

It's a power saving feature, which can cause serious delays in performance situations.
You wanna make sure?
Go in Windows Explorer,
right-click the drive and go to Properties.
In the "Hardware" tab, it's exact model number is listed. (all drives are there, too)
the issue is the drive head is parked every 8 seconds and spindle motor stopped
