Re: Internal SD Card not mounting?
So you thought creating another thread with exactly the same problem was going to speed things along?

Without any basic info, I would just simply suggest you to do a reflash, a clean installation, start from scratch.

Re: Internal SD Card not mounting?
Well I'm on the slimbean rom 4.2.2 build 2.5
Current, when I go to storage, it says that I have only 1.97gb of internal storage when I should really have 11gb.
I'm running stweaks with the ajk "everything works" kernel
In storage, there is a category called "USB STORAGE" under it, it says Mount SD Card but it's greyed out. And then it says "insert an SD card for mounting" meaning that my phone doesn't even think I have an internal SD card.
In CWM, of I try to Mount SD card, of doesn't let me and if I retry to format SD card, it doesn't let me

This happened to me once. I removed the card and put in my PC then copied all the data off as a backup. I reformatted the card and then when I put it back into my phone it mounted great. I then went back and moved all the data back via USB.

USB storage would be the internal memory, or internal sd card if you prefer, and SD card would be the external sd card which you must insert first before you can mount. If you will look again, you will probably see that it says device memory is 1.97 gb total space with usually 1.something gb still available. I don't know your rom and kernel real well, but maybe device memory is called internal storage? USB storage should say something like 11.36 gb total space.

So if the USB storage is not being recognized then the problem could be either hardware or firmware related. So did you flash back to stock, or reflash your rom or another rom? That would be the first step of troubleshooting.

Prompt Researching...
so i did some more looking around on the forums today and found out that there is a way to get back your internal sd card by running these commands
i opened up terminal emulator and ran these commands that i saw on another forum:
su
echo mkdir /storage/sdcard0 > /data/local/userinit.sh
chmod 700 /data/local/userinit.sh
reboot

apparently, after the reboot, your phone is supposed to have mounted the internal sd card manually.
however after trying this method twice and rebooting, i still have the same error and my sd card has yet to be mounted

nope, all it says is that internal storage total space = 1.97gb
SD card stoage space (external sd card) = 3.68gb (this is true becasue i have a 4gb external sd card)
theres nothing that says 11.36gb free total space
