How to reset 2007 Chevy Impala Radio?

My radio works but it doesn't play CDs. I have trouble putting in CDs and when it does catch it just comes up as Err.
Please help

Probably not much you can do about it unless you open it up and try to diagnose/repair the physical mechanism....

You mean a stock store-bought CD or a recorded one with mp3's and stuff?
Because the 2007 stock factory radio will not play those.
It might play ".wmv" recorded CD's, I'm not sure but I know for a fact it will not play anything else.
Not very elaborate, standard CD formats only.

What I did on mine...
Is I purchased a Bluetooth FM transmitter dongle and play my stuff through that, iHeartradio, no more CD's but I could use a thumb drive if I wanted.
