(OpenSuSE10.3, KDE3, K3B version 1.0.5)

When I try to use K3B to copy a DVD, it asks me to insert a DVD+-R. I have DVD+R and DVD-R, neither of which are recognized by K3B. I've looked for DVD+-R in online stores but I can't find them plus I've read several articles about DVD format. None of them even mention DVD+-R. Is there such a media? Do I need them to copy DVDs? Is there a known bug in KB? Any assistance will be appreciated.

I would assume that should be interpreted as either DVD+R or DVD-R. DVD writers are +-, not the media. What does /var/log/messages tell you when you insert a blank disc? It sounds like perhaps your drive is bad and not recognizing your media (or your media is not compatible with your writer. K3B only recognizes what the drive is telling it.

Here's a printout of /var/log/messages covering the time during which I inserted and removed a blank DVD-R media.

I'm not very good at reading logs but I don't see anything in there related to DVDs.
