    So I just rooted, and planned on flashing CM10, so I downloaded it, and placed it in the root of the SD card. When I went into recovery mode to search for the .zip, itb showed all the other files on the card, but not the .zip i needed. What gives? I've tried rebooting/redownloading, etc. nothing.

    Are you sure it's not playing it somewhere else?

    its not. I checked using the "my files" app, and they're there under all of the folders where they should be

    That app doesn't have elevated permissions to view root fs. Use X-plorer or ES File Explorer app or equivalent.

    I'll try that, but why? I can see the files on my phone, but when in recovery they're not there. What would cause that?

    EDIT: So using ES file explorer I checked, and dont see the files anymore... why not? I havent done much work in recovery since I rooted my OG Evo. Has something major changed with CWM since then?

    Oops, I misunderstood, failed to RFC.

    They don't start with a dot, do they? (i.e. "/.DotMakesMeHidden.zip")

    IIRC CWM has a "show hidden files" option; try that. (I use TWRP2.2)
