n my database, in one of the table I have a GUID column with allow nulls. I have a method with a Guid? parameter that inserts a new data row in the table. However when I say myNewRow.myGuidColumn = myGuid I get the following error: "Cannot implicitly convert type 'System.Guid?' to 'System.Guid'."

but in whatever guid it should have some value.
otherwise it will insert null in guid column.

like You have created a guid
System.Guid g=System.Guid.NewGuid()

you can not use this one
System.Guid g=new System.Guid() will create guid with blank.

Guid? and Guid are different types.
you need to cast the nullable guid before assigning it to a guid value:
myNonNullableGuid = (Guid)myNullableGuid;
