Either that or perhaps the OP is using an old copy of Odin not intended for Knox ROMs.

OP, what Odin version are you running?

I've used everything from 1.83 to 3.09. I run as administrator. I'll try another cord later today when I get off work but I don't believe that's the issue.

Have you tried a different USB port on the pc? I can usually switch between the two front ports and Odin will finally recognize it.

Solved. For some reason when I used someone else's cord (and my laptop), Odin noticed it right off the bat. Thanks for the help guys!

I had this issue before and helped someone out here recently. Despite the cable "working" most of them don't. I've ALWAYS used a genuine HTC cable (yeah I know...I have a Samsung product) whenever messing around with Odin or when connected to the baseband. Those aftermarket/ebay cables should be avoided for anything other than charging or using MTP.

Meh. Monoprice cables work fine IME.

It was an LG cord that did it. But my last cord I used was a ten dollar one from a gas station.
