Error: This appears to be a surface mesh.
Surface meshes cannot be read under the /file/read-case functionality.
Reading Cells: failed while reading section 12.
Clearing partially read grid.
Error: Read_Grid_Section: Aborted due to critical error.

It look that you changed the file type while you exporting it from Gambit be sure that you select solver as FLUENT 5/6 and rename your mesh file then export it again if Gambit wrote for you this message (your mesh file exported successfully) that's mean the mesh file become ready to use in FLUENT.
