    Hello,

    I'm new to the forum, but I think this is where I should be posting this. Anyways, I'm having problems with mounting my internal sd card from the recovery on my GS3. I got the phone a few days ago, and I've been trying to install a custom rom. I first install a rooted stock rom, and from there I flashed CWM using the adb shell. I then put the zip file for the rom I wanted into my phone's internal storage, and booted into CWM recovery. Now, whenever I try to get to the file it says "E: Can't mount /sdcard" I tried manually mounting but that didn't work either. So, I decided to give TWRP a go; no luck. I tried doing a factory reset, but the phone just boots into the recovery and says it can't mount any of the storage devices. So finally, I decided to reflash the stock recovery and I got the same result. I've searched all over for an answer to this problem, but I can't seem to find anything. Any help would be great.

    Thanks in advance,
    Deficus
