What file are you tryin to load in odin? It should be a Tar file. If it is a zip then you most likely can flash it in recovery.

It is a tar file. I was in 4.3 before I flashed CM. I realized that the file I was trying to use through Odin, was sprint 4.2.2 Can I load a 4.2 if I was on 4.3? Or do I need to find a stock 4.3 from sprint?

Don't know if you have solved your issue.. But what I can tell you by reading your post is ,that you're trying to use an older build. Once you are on MJA 4.3 there is no going back to any previous build. Grab the stock 4.3 flash that and you should be good to go....
