    I go back and forth between the Sharp ROM, MTDEV-CM7 and MTDEV-CM9. If I backup all three and am using CM9 for example, when I try to restore Sharp, I get the following lines:

    CWN-based Recovery v5.0.2.6
    Checking MD5 sums...
    Erasing boot before restore
    Restoring boot image
    System image not found. Skipping restore of /system
    data.img not found. skipping restore of /data
    .android_secure.img not found. skipping restore of /sdcard/.android_secure
    cache.img not found. skipping restore of /cache
    sd-ext.img not found. Skipping restore of /sd-ext
    Restore complete!

    But nothing has been restored.

    I also tried restoring with CWM5.5.04 with same result.

    I then tried backing up with and it went through all the backup steps, but left no file. Any suggestions or is restoring between Sharp and CM9 not doable?

    Looks like the problem is right here

    System image not found. Skipping restore of /system
    data.img not found. skipping restore of /data
    .android_secure.img not found. skipping restore of /sdcard/.android_secure

    Looks like the backup is corrupt.

    Something is corrupting it because they once restored.

    Memory cards tend to do this. You can try and backup your SD Card on your PC and then format the card, and copy back the data.

    Same thing I was gonna suggest, it strange but after so long of running a rom or if ur flashing a lot of different roms the SD card seems to go wonky, I've had it happen maybe 3 times, I usually blame the sd cause ive never had rom issues, i just pop the SD into my PC and slow format it to fat32 and I'm good to go

    Like g60 said, it could be the memory card. It could also be that when you did the backup, it didn't backup anything. Just the empty folder. It happened to me a few times before. I always double check after backing up to see if my backup folder has reasonable size to it. Roughly around 200 MB I believe. For some reason, sometimes, CWM doesn't backup things.

    Well I've never had a backup issue, I was just saying ive had my SD go wonky, I've also helped more then one user troubleshoot music issues that all lead back to the SD as well

    I've had the same thing happen to me. I would run the backup and it would take like 5 seconds, then reboot. It would happen if I clear cache first. I don't know why, I used to be able to clear the cache. Anyway, me too.

    Thanks guys! There was something bonkerz with the SD card as it was giving me backup dates in January. I took your suggestion and reformatted the SD card and it now gives the correct backup dates.

    After getting my Sharp ROM back in the desired format though I am hesitant to go back to CM-9 until the camera issue is resolved. It is not the photos I need, but the scanning of barcodes for price comparison.
