what drivers? PC S4 (USB and other) drivers? Go and install Kies and let it connect once, it will DL the proper drivers and install them, and after that kill Kies and Kies processes on your PC and you're set for Odin...

Edit: Then if you need those specific drivers again and on the same PC (or even a different one), then repeat the steps or simply perform the backup with Driver Magician or similar and you'll have them even after the PC format...
