Selecting RAW, but adds a jpg

Just trying to figure out why when in the REC MODE menu when I select RAW+ and PEF the camera captures the image in PEF, but also adds a JPG? Actually, it happens regardless of what RAW file format I select. It seems redundant to me.

So, why does it do this and is there a way to stop this?

Yes. Just select RAW (not RAW+)

RAW+ is meant to produce a raw and a jpeg file !

According to the manual for my K20D, RAW+ is just that - RAW plus JPG. Select RAW for just a RAW image.

Arrrrhhhh. I was thinking RAW+, was some sort of higher quality/larger raw file. Thanks.

Yeah, RAW+ came in handy for me once at school, where I had to take pictures of people and didn't have time for PP.

I took the JPEG's and used those, and then I took the RAW's home and edited them

RAW+ is good if you don't have the time to PP and convert all your files. If you are satisfied with the out of camera JPEG you can just keep that.
