Default Cannot flash a ROM from External SD. Status 7

Rooted Note II. When trying to flash a new ROM from the external SD, get a persistent error "error in zip", "installation aborted", "status 7". Tried various recoveries, to no avail.
The various ROM zips are perfectly openable from a regular file explorer, yet I can't finish the installation from a recovery. What's going on, I have never had this kind of problem before.

Amy insight would be really appreciated.

The "status 7" error usually happens if you use an outdated recovery.
Did you try with latest TWRP or CWM?
