Get rid of the ()'s or
DateTime myDate = DateTime.ParseExact("2009-05-08 14:40:52,531", "(DD-MM-YYYY HH:mm)",
                                       System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)

IFormatProvider culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("fr-FR", true);
// Alternate choice: If the string has been input by an end user, you might
// want to format it according to the current culture:
// IFormatProvider culture = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture;
DateTime dt2 = DateTime.Parse(date, culture, System.Globalization.DateTimeStyles.AssumeLocal)

you are going to have to do some work to get the string into something datetime can work with.. Months are 2 digits not 1 digit (they may also be 3 characters) I'd fix your input so that it returns 2 digits for the month or you have to do some string manipulation for months prior to October.
