Unhappy [Q] I need help flashing a rom using TWRP. Galaxy s3

I bought my galaxy s3 like four days ago and was going to factory reset and I accidentally hit the advanced wipe and deleted my entire operating system. I can't get my phone to go past the samsung galaxy s III screen. So I looked up how to fix it everywhere says to use odin but I'm having trouble getting my phone to connect to odin at all. I downloaded a rom from xda and saved it to my sd card so I knw how to do everything up to that step. When trying to flash the zip file it keeps telling me that it has failed idk what to do can someone walk me through this or tell me what I'm doing wrong here ?

What recovery are you using to flash it? Does it give any specific error?
What does odin do when you try to use it? Does it register the COM port in the top left? You are in download mode for this right? Correct drivers installed? If you have kies, uninstall it. Have you tried different usb ports and cables?

I had problems with twrp and switched to cwm.

Do you have an external SD card?
