Question CWM Recovery - E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command

Last night I decided to install ClockworkMod Touch Recovery 5.8.0.2. I downloaded the image file from this link:

http://download.clockworkmod.com/rec....2-shooter.img

I then used Flash Image GUI from the Play store to install the recovery. Everything seemed to work just fine. I was able to boot into recovery and the touch features worked.

Today, I created a backup using ROM Manager and it appeared to complete properly. However, now when I boot into Recovery, I get these errors:

E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log

I've tried re-flashing the regular (non-touch) Recovery using ROM Manager and it installs, but I'm still getting the same errors when I boot into Recovery.

I can boot my phone normally and everything works just fine. I just can't do anything with Recovery anymore so I'm stuck on this ROM until I find a solution.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

So based on that post, you're saying my issues lie on the SD Card, and not the internal memory?

I ended up fixing this by following the steps outlined here to return to 100% stock:

I then ran the Revolutionary tool to get S-OFF and manually flashed ClockworkMod Recovery via Fastboot.

I'm now back in business!

Default Errors in clockworkmode recovery

hi everyone
i did a terrible thing and bought a china tablet !
anyway, i installed a new clockworkmod v6.0.2.8 on the device and since then every time i turn on the device, i got these Errors :

E:can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E:can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:can't open /cache/recovery/log
E:can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:can't open /cache/recovery/last_log

i tried these : wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache patition, backup and restore, install update.zip, install zip from sdcard, flashtools, odin (which doesn't work because phone don't have any home button !), heimdall, wiping and installing multiple roms .
i even tried to open the clockworkmod .img file from the trick i find in xda forum and put the extract files into a update.zip and fix the problem !!!
but unfortunately the .img file can't be extracted with :ext4_unpacker and ext2explore . it says : unknown file format !
i know the tablet is not bricked . because if it was, should not turned on and went to clockworkmod instantly and stuck in the errors i just typed !
if anyone knows how can i fix the problem, please help !
i will be Appreciated !
thank u .
