I tried 3 types of burned CD-R and none of them read however. This is kind of alarming as I pissed off the people who work at the place where I got my Xbox because I returned it 2 times to make sure I got a Samsung drive.

Back to xbox drives and media.. No matter what drive you get it may or may not play certain media, its all luck of the draw. You can have 2 xbox's with the same drive and one will play (for example) memorex dvd-r's and the other wont. What it comes down to is no matter what drive you get you will still need to find the media that works with it so dont stress on the type of drive you have or will get.

You got one of the new Samsungs. They seem to be shipping in XBOXs made after June04 here in Canada. The new Samsungs are physically different than the older ones (yellow connector goes on the other side). I also found the new Samsungs doesn't mount properly under the Linux flash procedure thus making it very hard to flash the chip to another bios. However, they do seem to read CDRs properly so maybe you aren't burning the discs properly.
