wait, it does or doesnt go to download mode? if it does....odin back to stock. make sure you use the 4.3 tar if you have a knox enabled bootloader.

if it doesnt go into download, mount usb storage from recovery and put a stock touchwiz rom on your phone and flash that?

I found that when I downloaded TWRP for recovery and tried to install 4.4, I was unable to do so(install error). I flashed a 4.3 and worked. That might not answer your question but that's what happened to me.

I put a micro-SD card in my computer using the adapter and placed the rom on it. Put it back in your phone, find the file in recovery, then flash.

Your TWRP issue is likely a compatibility issue. If you are using version 2.6.3.0, that version is not capable of flashing KitKat 4.4.x ROM's due to changes in the code from 4.3.x to 4.4.x. Version 2.6.3.1 is supposed to be compatible for KitKat, but a lot of users, myself included, could not get it to work properly, nothing would mount in recovery, and the touch response was horrendous. I personally highly recommend Philz Touch recovery, it is based on CWM, but is light-years beyond regular CWM, and is virtually flawless in my opinion.
