Which ANSYS version are you using? I was able to create the mesh on your geometry within couple of secs and with default mesh settings.

When the meshing process fails there are good error messages given. Use them as guidelines.

By the way what errors are you getting?

There is very good documentation available in ANSYS help. You can search by the methods. Let me know if you need specific detail about any particular method. I can't explain every method here :)
I guess you will be better using patch conforming for the geometry you have and for the analysis you are using.
You can play around with relevance: make it higher around 100.
make "Relevance Center:" use fine or medium.

If this doesn't work then try using "On Fixed" advanced size function.
