Default [Q] Cannot flash new rom

Hi all. First of all, i apologize if this is a re-post. I have been trying to get this working for three days and have searched around a lot. I want to flash a newer ROM to my touchpad. I have had it for two years and have flashed lots of updates an new roms. Recently updated to JB but didn't flash gaps so I don't have the Play Store and I always get the message that Google+ stopped.

Now when I try to flash a new rom, I always get the message CWM-Based Recovery v6.0.4.7 No Files Found I have tried renaming the file to update.zip, tried leaving it as is, tried putting it in root folder... Why will it not work?

I think you have a data/media recovery installed on a non data/media build (Jelly Bean).
As it looks like you won't be able to flash a new recovery from your current recovery, you could do it from within your current JB rom using terminal emulator.

If you're looking to install JB or similar you can't go wrong with the 20121215 file from here.
