I just purchased a 2001 Chevy Cavalier and the problem is with the single factory CD player. when I inserted a burnt CD for the first time, it read 'CD'; then 'Error' then the player immediately ejected the CD and the radio came back on. The exact same scenarion occurrd when I inserted a bought CD as well and the problem still exists. Does anyone have an explanation as to why this is occurring and a solution to my CD player problem?

Most radios and cd players in cars require a code to get them operating again after they have been disconnected from the battery for an extended time. Hopefully a dealer could help you locate the code for that model.
It will work as long as it's for a GM cd radio but as mentioned it will have to be re-programmed by the dealer.
If it's an aftermarket cd player, you'll require a separate module harness with a relay circuit for the airbags and tach information to function. Or you can purchase a re-location kit which allows you to locate your factory radio into your trunk to hold those funtions. The re-location kit is a fair bit cheaper than the module. It's stupid that GM would design a system like that but that's what you'd need.
you have a cd driver error and it needs to be repaired or replaced. repairing it is cheaper, and the cheapest solution, Our shop repairs these unit on a regular basis. If you replace it with another factory unit you will have to have it programed at the dealer for it to work. Aftermarket radio will require some skill o install. modules and accessories will need to be purchased. Not sure where you are but our shop is in Oshawa Ontario.
I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.
