(1) Change usb port (yes this does work sometimes)
(2) Change usb cable (yes this does work sometimes)
(3) Reinstall usb drivers


(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

Go to device manager in windows look for yellow triangle when you plug your phone into pc in download mode (to see triangle plug usb in then back out) right click on triangle select update drivers install and reboot....See if that works

Edit: Also try a older version of odin

didn't work, i didn't see any yellow triangle when i plugged it in, and the drivers are updated, i already updated them today because i thought it'll solve the problem.
