Hi,

Have you tried these?
Convert.ToDateTime(DateString);

Or
DateTime myDate = DateTime.ParseExact("2013-12-25 00:30", "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss", System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)

rikin_shah shows you the way to do it, but only in the second part of his answer, by calling ParseExact.

Convert.ToDateTime is always dangerous to use because it takes into account the format of the date as defined in the Control Panel, and this can change from one computer to another. You might test it on your computer and it works, only to break on one of your users computer. It can be used for dates typed in by the user, but never for dates that come from files or that a database returns as a fixed string format.
