The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value

Hello Experts,

I am trying to insert a row in the database but I am getting data conversion error, it was working fine earlier.

Can someone please advise why it should not work?

I have used the following statement to add a record in the table

INSERT INTO LearnItResults (CustomerID, TestID, GiftCodeID, StartTime)
 VALUES(65079,2,'CHOCOXT454545','15/10/2008 14:28:30')

and i have got the following error message

Msg 242, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value.
The statement has been terminated.

thanks
kay

same SQL statement in ASP.net

 Dim SqlQuery As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder
                SqlQuery.Append("INSERT INTO LearnItResults (CustomerID, TestID, GiftCodeID, StartTime) VALUES(")
                SqlQuery.Append(CustomerID & ",")
                SqlQuery.Append(TestID & ",")
                SqlQuery.Append("'" & GiftCodeID & "',")
                SqlQuery.Append("'" & System.DateTime.UtcNow & "'")
                SqlQuery.Append(")")

                Dim MyCommand As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand(SqlQuery.ToString(), MySqlConnection)

                MyCommand.Connection.Open()
                MyCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
                MyCommand.Connection.Close()
