Default Unable to mount internal storage

I've flashed to a couple of aosp roms (cm, ls), but my phone does not read my internal storage. Recovery still recognizes it, but not in the rom. It also does not show up when I connect it to my pc. Any ideas why?

You're on new partitions and flashing old partition ROMs, or vice versa. Or you're flashing a ROM that isn't working quite right. For example the latest SOKP build is supposed to be for new partitions, but internal storage doesn't seem to be working right.

To know for sure, I need to know what HBoot, TWRP and ROM you are trying to run.

I also wanted to ask about partitions. What exactly are partitions and how do I know if I need to update them? I would appreciate a quick explanation if you don't mind (relatively new to all of this).

I believe partitions are basically sections of the disc storage. You have already updated them based on your HBOOT and recovery version. I'm guessing via ruu?

On the old setup you essentially had two partitions for internal storage, media storage & internal storage. They were divided up roughly 2Gb and 10Gb, respectively. On the new partition layout you only have internal storage, which is now roughly 12Gb. Not sure why it's not showing up when you connect it to your PC, unless you're not looking at it correctly. When you connect to your PC you should see your device (EVO, I believe is what it will show up as). If you double-click on the device name you should see your internal storage and external storage (if you have a SD card installed).

I formatted the card, now it's working. Not sure what messed it up though.
