Default Problems flashing custom roms

I have rooted my Note 3 N9005, 4.4.2, and installed CWM, but whenever I go to install a custom Rom via cwm it says that it is bad and aborts, I have tried various roms and it is the same with them all. Any punters or tips for me to try?

Strange, flash back to stock via Odin, then install TWRP or PhilZ advanced CWM and try again - could just be a bad CWM install
// LG G3 (D855) // Stock // Stock //

// HTC One (M8) // GPE Stock // Stock GPE//

// Nexus 7 (flo) // Android L // Stock//

S3(White) > M7(Red) > Note 3(Black) > Nexus 5(Black) > M8(Gunmetal)/LG G3 (Titan Grey)

Could also be the roms are corrupted...
If you have wifi at home try downloading directly to the phone instead of PC. Might be the problem...

Indeed.. And always verify the size of the downloaded file against the one usually posted on the download page.

Additionally.. I would have to concur about using TWRP. It has never failed me.
