Fluent, Grid Builing Issue

I'm trying to model the flow around around a wing mirror. I've taken the geometry in gambit, created a volume around it and subtracted the mirror geometry from it. I then mesh it and export the mesh for use in Fluent. When i read the mesh in Fluent i get an error stating "Building...
