I have a string like "60165F010430313037"

I have to store each 2 chars in an byte array or simply an array like

a[0] = 60
a[1] = 16
a[2] = 5F

...like that

The simple route would be something like:

            string splitMe = "60165F010430313037";
            string[] a = new string[splitMe.Length / 2];
            int start = 0;
            for (int i = 0; i < splitMe.Length / 2; i++)
                a[i] = splitMe.Substring(start, 2);
                start += 2;

Not sure how you'd convert it to a byte array though.

string source = "60165F010430313037";
byte[] bytes = new byte[source.Length/2];
for(int i=0 ; i < source.Length/2 ; i++)
  string s = source.Substring(2*i,2);
  b[i] = byte.Parse(s,System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber);
