Default [Q] Samsung galaxy s3 i9300 rebooting ( bricked? )

hi all,

i have a samsung galaxy s3.
when i boot the phone it's flashing at the text samsung galaxy i9300 for 1 sec and reboot again in a loop

i had cyanogenmod 11 installed on it, but wanted to go back to stock firmware.

what i dit was this:

i download the original firmware for my phone and region. ( Netherlands ) PHN-I9300XXEMH1-20130828150847
1: start odin3 (v1.85 )
2 load the md5 into the PDA section
3 put my phone in download mode
4 connect it to pc.
5 start odin.

the only thing i get is this:

<ID:0/007> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> I9300XXEMH1_I9300PHNEMG2_I9300CEEMG2_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/007> Odin v.3 engine (ID:7)..
<ID:0/007> File analysis..
<ID:0/007> SetupConnection..

Not good, try a later version of odin first.
