When I insert a cd in my car radio(it is an LG KD-G405 front loader) it tries to read it and then ejects the cd without playing it. This is not an intermittent problem as it ejects every CD I put in the player.

Most older cd's run under a different style of cd format which was changed as cd's changed your radio probably has old setup with it not excepting new cd's format this could be the cause try this dig threw your closet find the old cd's from wense came a long time try that old cd's had a different format that was used compared to todays cd's. todays cd players can play the now wide variety of any cd almost if that didnt work you need professional cleaning for your deck or buy new one
this all might sound confusing but old cd's had a format they used which has changed so every device can use old or new format for cd's

I had a simular problem ,the only thing you might try is a cd cleaner disk that has a little brush on it. might be a dust build up on the optical eye.
or it just worn out. the optical eye in my opion is sensitive and hitting big bumps with a cd playing might throw it out of whack...they can make like a little bluetooth or cartridge that holds all of any music cd or 30 cds....it would be pure electronics...but i guess it compares to oil co. that wont put out the electric car..jobs and money is what its about.
you get my point.

If youre getting an error code and All cd's are being ejected than your CD mechanism " loader" is bad. You can contact United Radio in Syracuse, NY if you think its worth fixing, if its only certsin discs and Radio plays radio stations ok then it may be CDs that are not in MP3 format which will not play in your radio. Let me know.
Turn off the car (ignition switch off), pull the fuse for the radio, start the car (ignition switch to run), and put the fuse back in. Should completely reset the radio and let you eject the CD if it doesn't automatically eject it when the radio powers up again. Even with both the radio and the car turned "off" the radio still has power running to it, and it really isn't off, but in an extremely low power "sleep" mode (it's how the clock keeps running among a few other things).
The radio fuse should be a 10 Amp blade type fuse under the panel on the right side of the center console down in the right front passenger foot well. The panel pulls off and has a fuse diagram on the inside of the panel. Recommend using a flashlight.
This 'reading text" lockup is a known issue for that radio for CDs that have a large amount of "CD-Text" on them (an extension of the audio CD standard) in addition to the audio tracks. The CD deck and radio software were designed to handle a few kilobytes, but newer CDs often have more, much more, and it overloads the radio software trying to read it as it cannot store it all, and it locks up the deck. There was a radio software update fix for this that was rolled out to dealerships when these vehicles were under warranty, but apparently your radio was never reflashed or exchanged for one with the software update. I recommend seeing a Chevy dealership and asking to talk to the service manager about getting the radio updated or exchanged with the software fix . . . and they should do this without any charge as it was a latent defect in the radio software from day one . . . don't let them tell you the deck is broken . . . the problem is deck lockup when trying to read audio CDs with large amounts of CD-text on them because of a latent software defect in the radio (that was there from the day the radio was made). Only a few music CDs seem to have this problem, but it's a huge one with audio book CDs (books on CD) that have usually have many more audio tracks and much more CD-text compared to music CDs.
If you cannot get satisfaction after visiting two or three dealers, call Chevy directly and take up the issue with them . . . and tell them there should have been a recall to fix it while the vehicle was under warranty . . . but there wasn't (I believe there is a service bulletin though).
are they store bought CDs ? or are they copies? cause some players unless stated will not play MP3 or MP4 cds, or CDRs , CDRW Etc.... check if the Cds are burned copies, and then also check the music layout if copied, using the computer, see if they are mp3 files that should play if they are mp4 then the cd will act blank....hope this helps...
The player is recognizing that a CD has been inserted but is not able to read it.
Sometimes the lens assembly becomes contaminated and obscures the laser. I'd try using a commercial "lens cleaning CD" two or three times and then try a CD again. These lens cleaning CD's are widely available. If cleaning does not help, the player need professional service.
Have you tried removing the negative terminal from your car battery and giving it a few minutes. Hook the terminal back up and try your cd player again? That should be the same as resetting your cd player settings.
