Default Unable to get SD Card to Mount EVO 4G

I have an EVO 4G that boots into the Hboot screen when powered up. Currently I am unable to get the SD card to Mount, therefore unable to do a recovery etc. Any thoughts?

so recovery cannot see your card? have you tried to flash anything? what happens? we need as much info as you can provide us.

The unit is rooted via revolutionary, Hboot 6.16 S-off. I cannot get the unit to go into recovery mode and am not able to get the unit to recognize the SD Card.

ok well do you have a card reader? or another card? basically we need to get a file over to the sd card and see if we can get a custom recovery and then try and flash a rom and see if that fixes the issue.

I was able to "fastboot" the unit into CWM recovery. I have tried another SD card but am unable to get the unit to recognize either card.

Just a thought here you said your friend got it off of eBay. This might sound dumb but is there an sd card in the phone?
Edit...nvm

Yes there is an SD Card in the phone.
I was able to go into DOS and force the phone into recovery. So currently I am in Clockwork Mod (CWM) recovery and unable to get the unit to see any of the known working SD cards that I have.

ok sorry for all of the questions just needed to know where we are at. lets try this fix then:[ How-To ] Fix SD card not being detected & USB port not working - xda-developers, since you have adb setup.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yeah i would switch from cwm to amon ra 2.3 myself. it is a much better recovery. once you have that then you can try and flash a rom. i would suggest that you try Mikg3.11 just flash the full wipe version. it is waaaaay better then stock.
