When I try to copy object data from one mesh object to multiple objects, the rest of the objects disappear, and the object data is only copied to one object. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Set Origins First.

Speculate that the array objects are the result of applying array modifier and separate by loose parts.

Notice they all share the origin of bottom left corner original.

When you link data the non offset mesh of active is given to all objects of array, hence you have all objects in same location.

Simply set origin to geometry of array selection (eg in question GIF, after selecting all white spheres, and before selecting red object and linking object data.
