    Really Simple

    Just get yourself a DVD RW drive!

    This drive will:

    Read, Play, and Burn CD's

    Read, Play, and Burn DVD's

    CD -R and +R and Dvd -R and +R are just different types of CD's and DVD's.

    Heres a link with an example of a nice combo drive:

    This particular drive supports:

    DVD/CD-Rewritable drive. This 5.25-inch half-height IDE drive can write to the following formats: DVD+R, DVD+R- Double Layer, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-R-Double Layer, DVD-RW, CD-R and CD-RW discs.

    Just make sure when you buy the cd's or dvd's that they are the correct format.

    Hope that helps! :D

    What do you mean by "Game Disc"? If it's like a playstation game then probably not. If it is a computer game on a cd or dvd, then yes.
