Question [HELP] [i9500] Weird Connection Problem with Download Mode

Hey guys so I decided today to have fun with my S4 (i9500 variant). But I am encountering a weird problem in here.

I am able to connect my phone when it's booted can copy, adb, everything, but the story changes when I put the phone in Download Mode, no sound (default windows device connect sound) is played on my PC and Odin doesn't detect my phone but as soon as I connect my USB cable (while in Download mode) and remove my battery Odin shows "Added!!!" as soon as I put the battery in it shows "Removed!!!" and the phone disconnects!

I got the battery idea from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YO7TVY2UXEY

Video exactly depicts the scenario I am going through but when the guy re-inserts his battery his phone isn't disconnected while mine is.

Yes, I have uninstalled and reinstalled Kies, downloaded drivers separately and installed them everything is perfect from that view.

HTC Touch Pro2 | ROM: Valkyrie 6.5.23115TR2.5

I didn't I'll try on my laptop later, to be honest I don't think PC would a problem ad it works perfectly wheb the phone is booted, also my PC would be impliedly ruled out since it's a powerhouse and everything's perfect from that view.

I think it would be driver or cable problem.
