Default Sharp edge after smoothing

I am in grate need of your help friends!!!
I am working on some kind of robot and I need to convert it to sub-d to modify my model with Full Crease and Partial Crease options but when I want to convert my poly model into sub-d nothing is happening. Or if there is another way to make some edges sharp before or after smoothing the model please tell me. Here is picture of what I am talking about, this stomach muscles need to be with sharp edge but everything else needs to be poly smoothed!! Please answer me quickly and thx in advance!!!

Select th eedges you want to be smooth and choose EditPolygons>Normals>Soft/Hard options and set to Smooth. Select all the edges you want to be hard and do the same thing, only making them hard with the Soft/Hard normal command.

edit* -or if you actually want to perform the smooth operation on specific parts of your model, it's just a matter of selecting the faces you want to smooth, then using the Polygons>Smooth command.

first it should be telling you why your not able to get it in to subD. After you try, open the script editer and have a look. Had it happen to me just last night.. It wouldn't go to subD becouse it had more faces than the minimom that was set with the slider.

putting edges close to other edges befor a smooth on the hole thing can make a nice crease. Takes a little practice and trile and error also.
