Default [Q] Trying to restore recovery/OS but can't put any files on it!

I have an LG G2 D800 with Cyanogenmod on it right now, and Clockwork Mod for my recovery. When booting into CWM, it gives me 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

Also, when in the OS (in Cyanodenmod), when I plug it in, it won't let me drag any files onto it. The Google Play Store keeps on crashing too. What I want to do is just flash a new recovery, then wipe away CM and start it again. It's kind of hard right now though because I have no idea how I can get the files on my phone to do this, any help will be appreciated.

Yeah I tried both methods. Does this have anything to do with it? When I type in 'adb devices', I see my phone, but when I'm in adb shell, when I type in 'adb devices', it doesn't find anything.
EDIT: I found out I was able to install goomanager onto my phone, looks like I'll try that method instead
EDIT again: Looks like goomanager can't find the recovery to install on my phone, and I've tried installing both flashify and rashr, but it won't let me, ugh this is such a pain, I thought I was close

Is your "usb debuging" on?under developpement setting?
i found an automated script for adb http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2472223
Adb should work
If not ,and if any apk can flash your recovery, u have to back to full stock
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2432476.
Then re root,reflash recovery etc....
How did u flash your strange recovery?do same but with twrp.img or a philz_touch.img
Look for thread about both, there is some 'how to install'.
I hope to be clear my language isnt english.
