Default [Q] Can't mount SD card in CWM when trying to root

I used ODIN to get CWM on the phone, and when i boot into CWM i tried to install the root .zip file but it always says it can not mount SD card. any suggestions on how to resolve? No issues with the SD card when trying to access it from within the OS or through windows when connected to the pc.

you can try to reformat it via a pc, but your best bet is to replace it with a class 6 or higher unit.

I had an issue awhile back where I couldn't mount the SD in recovery unless I booted from power off (not reboot).

I ended up using my sd card from my droid x2. It worked fine with that one. Thanks for the suggestion. Once I got root I just put my original card back in since it works fine from within the os.
