Trying to add two rows to existing table in SQL, but receiving conversion on Uniqueidentifier

I am trying to add two rows to an existing table in SQL Server Management Studio but receive this error:

"Conversion failed when converting from a character string to uniqueidentifier"

My assumption is that the tool I am using to load data into generates a field called _Product_ID which is unique. So I inserted some random value ({CEABDFA8-59AD-41B2-9848-898FF0EE7FDS}) to that column but still received that error.

Any thoughts?

"S" would not be valid in a uniqueident.

All characters must be 0-9 / A-F only.

It's actually a hexadecimal value.
