Default Can't mount or sideload a rom

I just unlocked and got s-off with rumrunner and I installed twrp. When I go in to mount the phone my computer recognizes that it's there but when I click on it it says please insert a disk. And when I try to adb sideload a rom it fails saying "E: Error executing updater binary in zip '/data.... So I can't sideload or put a rom on my phone because I can't mount it. I also tried to plug in a otg cable but it won't recognize that its there.

Sounds like you're using outdated adb/sdk tools. Older versions do not support adb sideload. Try updating.

If you feel I've helped, hit Thanks.

What happens if you put the device into recovery and plug it in to the PC and then run "adb devices" ? (without doing anything in the recovery)

Just put it in recovery and connect it to the pc and run that command and see what you get.
