I don't use k3b so what capability it has is not known to me.

The nominal capacity of the single sided DVD is 120 minutes but some 32 
different definitions are recognised including:
EP -- extended play - 360 minutes
LP -- long play - 240 minutes
SP -- standard play - 120 minutes
FINE - 60 minutes

Yes, it means that the total disk can be rewritten -- but the ability to
edit without rewriting all can be quite limited. And RW disks can have a 
rather limited rewrite life -- some 10s of times.

EP or LP modes with 6 or 4 hour capacity would probably both cater for a 
better quality than your analogue cassettes.
