    I even reformatted the sd card in the phone thinking maybe it wasnt formatted properly.

    plug the phone back in to the pc and see if on the sdcard there is a clockwork mode folder......if not do the odin thing again and see if you can make a backup this time......

    do you have a sdcard in the phone and is it new or from another phone...............you dont mount any thing your self.................did you get the green pass in odin after you flashed the tar file....................let me know what you did and will get you going.................also if it dosnt say   viper recovery/ or centura recovery/ twrp. depends on which one you used.then you still have stock recovery and it wont work.............

    The SD is from a different device of mine, but yes I have it in there. I have the file in it but when I try to do anything it says it cannot mount the location. Should I format it first? I have the green "Pass" on Odin I have the viper recovery v6.0.2.8

    does the PC see the phone and can you open the sdcard..................yes format it in the phone it self from settings /storage................then reboot and try to flash the rom..............and is the file on the sdcard itself not in any folder and still zipped............

    The pc can only see the phone when in normal boot. I'll try formatting the sd even though it can't even mount the internal sd.
    Edit: Formatting the sd card fixed it. Thanks so much
