Lost dvd drive

I have lost my dvd dive on a Fujitsu Lifebook S6410. The drive works momentarily at start up but then disappears and a message pops up saying something about " It is safe to remove OPTIARC Hardware".
Any advice on how to repair?

There might be a bad electrical connection in where the drive plugs into the laptop. If you can figure out how to unplug the drive from the laptop, I would suggest to clean the electrical contact with isopropyl alcohol.
