Is there a CD in the drive? If so, is it mounted? An icon may not show up unless a CD has been mounted. Also, this sort of thing is quite a desktop environment specific thing, so please tell us which you're using.

CDROM icon on desktop is only shown when a CDROM is mounted.

A CD should be inserted into the CD Drive inorder to view the CD Rom ICON.
