Question about Fujitsu Computers & Internet
Possible solutions are:
1. A problem is CD is conflicting with a hard drive --- On the back of each of the older IDE hard drives and CD ROMS are jumpers. They denote if the unit is a "MASTER", "SLAVE" or "AUTOMATICLY CONFIGURED". If they are set wrong the CD-ROM will not appear. You would also notice the computer would boot slowly. A quick check of the bios would reveal the jumper settings.
2. The Bios could be set wrong
3. The CD-ROM could be bad.
4. The CD-ROM could have the power or data cable not seated right.
5. The power supply could be out on this leg. Try another leg of the octopus for power.
This data is assuming you have a IDE CD-ROM and Windows XP or Vista.
If you have a older version of Windows or a MAC than it could be other things wrong.

Have you checked whether it is detected in device manager or not?
Go to control panel, system and hardware tab and device manager. See if you can see something under CD/DVD drives section. If nothing is there, you may have to open up the tower and fit the cables properly.
If it is present there, then you may have to follow some troubleshooting steps from this video.

Is this in a desktop or laptop? I will assume it is in a desktop
This could be caused by the jumper setting on the CD ROM is the same as another drive in the PC.
It could also be a loose or damaged IDE cable / power cable to the CD ROM.
Open the case of the PC and verify the IDE and power cable are securely in the back of the drive and the IDE cable is securely in the motherboard port.
If there is a 2nd device connected to the same IDE cable, verify one is set to MASTER and the other is set to SLAVE. Cable Select (CS) setting can fail - placing both devices as MASTER/SLAVE will eliminate a failed CS logic.
If this is in a laptop, turn the comptuer off and remove the battery and AC power. Remove the CD ROM (if the unit can be swapped) and re-insert the drive back in the laptop. Reboot the laptop with the drive in the laptop and test.

Drive requires cd drivers to run Boot CD.
Some versions came with floppy disk to start cdrom drives, This will also require a floppy drive.
You may also try hitting f10 to enter bios setup make sure cdrom is bootable.
