    Assuming you are in a learning process. If this is your real issue for your company etc. it is necessary to inform that, generally there is a list of supported modules the switch will support in the data sheets. However, several vendors put software limitations in the hardware that needs them for the SFP.

    Thanks a lot, but i eventually got the bullet to the problem. since the two switches are from different generation of switches,ie. Next  Generation Enterprise (all catalyst switches series are meant for big / enterprise networks) and Small Business Smart Switches(SG 500, SG200, SG300 and other series for small enterprises and home networks). No  Pair SFP is compatible with both generations, so using GLC-SX-MM or GLC-SX_MMD on the catalyst end of the connection and MGBSX1  on the SG500 end of the connection works, since the SFPs work at exaclty the same parameters ie 850nm (wave length) and 550m (supported distance) using MM fibre. This changes depending on the fibre type/mode and SFP parameters.
