Have you unzipped the file? Don't unzip it just flash the .tar file in Odin as @Joku1981 stated
A thank you takes nothing at all yet can mean so much

Disable the auto reboot setting in Odin.. Then, once the recovery is flashed and the screen says it completed correctly, pull your battery to turn the phone off, then replace battery, and reboot into recovery. Oh, and make sure you don't unzip the tat archive, just flash it as it comes.......

This was what I had to do when I was installing custom recovery on my s4......i hope it helps

Ok ive managed now to get my gs4 into recovery mode by using SGS4 FLASHER From the market, and i installed the .img file from there and hey presto all done , yippeeeee, now to try and upgrade to 4.4.2 nightlys rom, can i use the SGS4 FLASHER For that aswell ? and do i have to do a fresh wipe/data reset from recovery mode then wipe data/cach ? or can i just wipe data cach when installing nightlys rom ?

Thankyou again all
