Question CD-RW Will Not Burn

I'm having a problem with my CD-RW drive, in which I cannot burn anything to disc. I go through all of the proper steps in Window's CD Burning Wizard, but after I've done everything and the wizard has went through its procedures...I then check the disc and nothing has been burned onto it. It's completely blank! I've checked in Services for the IMAPI CD Burning Com Services (it's on automatic); I've deleted the drive (LITE-ON LTR 52246S) in Device Manager and re-booted for the re-install; I've even got third-party burning software (NTI DVD-Maker Gold), and (Creative CD Drive Burner Update); I've used Check-It Diagnostic software to check the functionality of my CD-ROM for the Read Data/Transfer Data, Full Stroke Access/Random Access tests (all passed); I've also used a CD lens cleaner. I have absolutely no problem reading discs, but I cannot burn anything. What's going on?! The only other thing I'm wondering about is if my CD-RW's have been affected by the magnetic field of my speaker system (I keep the CD-RW's in close proximity to the speakers). This has been happening now for about a month and I haven't installed any new software. I'm attaching my system profile. Additonally, I’ve also checked the Event Viewer and it came up with:

(1.) IO_WARNING_PAGING_FAILURE, and
(2.) IO_ERR_BAD_BLOCK

Any help will be greatly appreciated:

Thanks for the advice. You were correct. I discovered what the problem was: My CD-RW's (Memorex CD-RW 4x700mb-80min) are not the correct media for my drive, or either they were damaged some how. Because I tried a CD-R in the same drive and was successful in burning data. Now I'm going to replace my CD-RW's with a different media.
