Backup your SD card data, reformat the SD card. And restore the data, should work. However, the issue i was having with flashing ROMs was not due to SD card issues, but my actual data partition was corrupt and using CWM i formatted my entire data partition and everything flashed properly then.

HEY i tried re formatting the card but still sometimes it works other times it doesnt flash it makes no sense to me, sometimes i flash an 19505 rom and it works other times the same rom says installation aborted so then i install an 1337m rom and it works and 19505 ddoesnt i honestly am so confused why the hell is cwm doing this? Sometimes it flashes a rom and other times the same rom doesnt flash??? Can you tell me what you formatted from cwm so i can try that too

Back up your internal SD card and wipe the data partition completely. Youre having the exact same issues i was. its not the recovery, TWRP sucks imo

Default Unnessasary hate

Lol why you guys hating I got twrp and did what you said and all seems to be good I think twrp is better because in twrp there's a key important feature which is a file manager built in let's you move zips from sd card to internal or vice versa cwm doesn't have that

It has some nice features but for me, the only real functions for recovery are:

1) Wipe data/cache/dalvik and some other mounts.
2) Nandroid backup and restore.

Don't have any other needs, and CWM hasn't given me any troubles in ages, TWRP on the other hand... But if CWM had the file manager, it would make it that much better for me.
