Cisco 3560G and SFP GLC-GE-100FX

I have a Cisco 3560G, which I'm trying to get working with a GLC-GE-100FX.  When I insert the SFP, the switch states it's an unknown device and disables the port because of errors.

The SFP works fine in a 2960 switch, but I need to move to a 3560 for it's Layer 3 routing.

Any ideas?

Show Version from 3560G, see code Insert, clearly shows version 12.2(35) SE5, based on that website version 12.2(20)SE3 is at min. is required.  Unless cisco has some odd number sceme, the version on the switch is higher.

Any other thoughts?

[Cisco GLC-GE-100FX SFP modules with a serial number between OPC0926xxxx and OPC0945xxxx might show intermittent module not valid, data, status, link-flapping, and FCS errors. The workaround is to use modules with serial numbers that are not in the specified range. (CSCsh59585) ]

That applies to the 3560 switches.

Doesn't seem to be the case here, see code insert.  However... I just noticed that the SFP's are GLC-FE-100FX and not GE.

I looked again at the chart, and when it comes to the 3560G, they are only listed by model WS-C3560-8PC.

I'm guessing these SFP's don't work in the 3560G, I'll have to get the GE SFP.
