Try to use the below format is suitable for u

 SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(19), GETDATE(), 120)

Get the Date and convert into above format and insert into Table (ie using storedProcedure)

Format 'YYYYMMDD hh:mm[:ss[.sss]]' always works, regardless of any date and/or language settings.

insert into tbl  (id,MydateTime)  values(1,'20120824 16:41:00.000')

Using CONVERT code(s) instead just add chances for errors and forces everyone to (1) pre-memorize CONVERT codes or (2) look up CONVERT codes to be sure of the date.  So it just doesn't make any sense to do that.
