    It says DVD-R
    Try DVD+R if it make a difference.
    Both have different recording style if I am right.

    Also try to disable multi-session burning in K3b.

    So uninstall wodim - install cdrecord, what about cdrtools as well?

    cdrecord is part of cdrtools. The "cdrtools" package is just a meta package that pulls in all of the cdrtools.
    It is not really necessary, but it's probably better to switch all the tools to the cdrtools versions.

    cdrkit (wodim and friends) are old/outdated, unmaintained (and probably even buggy) forks of cdrtools, done by Debian years ago because of suspected license problems and not really developed further.

    See also:

    But for the actual burning, only cdrecord/wodim is used.
