Try cleaning the DVD drive head with a suitable disc cleaner.

Check on the origin of the DVD's that cannot be read, in case there is a common factor.

SOURCE: My Dell Optiplex 745 "No Boot Device Available"

No boot device means that the computer cannot find a drive that has a operating system files and therefore cannot boot up.
This usually means that the hard drive in the computer is faulty.
You need to get a new hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive, together with the drivers for the computer's installed devices and programs to get a working computer.

The disk is most likely no good anymore get another one from the factory for your computer or buy an operating system disk for your computer and go from there. I'm assuming this the disk you are speaking of. The question was kinda of vague was not sure what you meant. John

A free program called SIW windows will show you your present key by starting it then going to the License Option on the left side of the screen. The program also tells you everything else you need to know and then some.

Here is a download link for SIW from Cnet.http://download.cnet.com/SIW/3000-2094_4-10326678.html

Older Card readers do not read SDHC memory cards. If the card reader is built in then you probably cannot do anything about it, but you can buy a new USB Card reader to read the card.
