Mesh conversion with cfx4ToFoam

my Name is Jason and I just started using OpenFoam. I did all the tutorials and now I am trying to convert a mesh from Icem to OpenFoam. Which is the best format to convert from Icem to OpenFoam?
I started with cfx4, but I get an error message while converting.

What does that mean?

Thank's for help!
