The gdal_merge script needs the images to match in the coordinate system and
the number of bands.
One likely problem is could be different data types. Provide the gdalinfo
outputs of the images.
Before you try that, use the gdalbuildvrt program to create a vrt file and
then gdal_translate to convert the vrt file into a single image. The result
is usually the same.
