Why are you using Pro Logic II on DVDs? Pro Logic is basically fake surround sound. It uses 2 ch audio with special algorithms to figure out 3 or 4 channels. DVDs have either Dolby Digital or DTS on them with at least 5.1 (6 ch) on the DVD! No need to use Pro Logic at all!

I know the CDRs suck so for now I'm playing the games in FreeDO until I need more CDRs and by then I'll have to figure out what ones are best. Is there ...

Emulation isn't efficient and a general rule of thumb is your going to need ~10x more power if the hardware isn't similar. Seeing the 3DO is a RISC processor and the PC is an X86 the emulator has a TON of overhead. But I do remember playing Wolf3D on my 286 :) I've just downloaded FreeDO and I have ...
