Hello, I have 2 computers, a Dell and a half height Gateway. The Dell is more powerful, but the drive won't read any disks, and when you put one in the control panel still says it is empty. I was wondering, is the drive from the gateway compatible with the Dell?

it's possible, if both computers used the same type of cpu and chipsets. otherwise, it most likely wont work.

If I tried it, could it damage the computer if it doesn't work?

If you are talking about the DVD drive is should be easy and safe to swap.
