Default

Modify>Convert>Poly-to-SubD

If it doesn't work try...

Polygon>Cleanup, in the options select clean non manifold geometry
Check for extra hidden faces, maybe duplicates, though clean up op usually picks up on these.
Delete all unused vertices.
Sometimes if the problem area persits, I find it easier to delete the surrounding faces, and recreate them using the append polygon tool, this will fix it.

Hope that helps

Default subd

when you convert to subd's and doesn't work, it will be shown a message in the lower right side of the screen (in red). if you click the button right next to it it will expand a window where you can read the explanatoin of the error and some tips on what you can do to repair it.
