Question [Q] Internal Storage Not Being Detected

I tried flashing a bad rom and it soft rooted my phone, so I formatted everything (boot, system, cache, data, etc.).
I then installed Carbon Mod and GApps. It all worked like usual except for that Google Play Store kept on crashing.
I connected the phone to my PC, clicked on internal storage, and then tried creating a new folder. I then got an error that said "The device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected". I then tried the file manager on my phone, which gave me an error when I tried opening internal storage. Help!

EDIT:
I played with file manager a little trying to find a solution, and I found some hints. When I went into /storage/emulated, instead of finding a folder in there, I found a file that says legacy. In properties it says this file is Symlink type. Same with sdcard0. I tried deleting both of them and adding folders with the same name, but when I restarted the phone, the two items came back and the folders were nowhere to be found.

Try returning to stock with either an RUU or a nandroid backup. It looks like your bad rom did a job on your partitions.
