i understand that when in the hardware utility, only have one controler pulled into the computer at a time when setting controler i.d's, if not, not sure you may have to reset them. i guess i would first try plugging them in one at a time and changeing the unit i.d's to 01,02,03, etc.

this is absolutely correct & important. you can only set the ID on one controller at a time thru the hardware utility.

Actually you can change MULTIPLE controllers plugged into the HWU as long as they DO NOT have the same ID #. If both have an ID of 01, then if you try and reset just one, it will change both because you're telling it to change ID #01 to a different ID #. But if you bought a new controller which is set as a default of ID #00 and you have 2 controllers set as ID #01 and ID #02, even if all 3 are connected, you can change controller ID #00 to controller ID #03 in the HWU, and NOT AFFECT controllers 01 or 02 ID #'s.

That's how I do it when I want to reassign a controller ID # or add a new controller.

But no two controllers can have the same ID number, or it will change each controller with the same ID # to the SAME NEW ID #. So in that sceanario, each controller would have to be put on seperately, however once the first controller having the same ID # has been changed, you can put on the next controller that shared that same ID # and change it with both controllers connected at the same time.

So it is possible to do it in certain circumstances, just not recommended.

Pretty sure the 4 CTB16PC Controllers I bought new came set as 00, not 01.

You might want to read the white piece of paper inside the box. I've thrown away many of them.
