However before proceeding let me give the difference between a USB driver and an ADB driver. In simple words a USB driver is for flashing Stock firmware on to your galaxy Smartphone while an ADB driver is for connecting your phone to a computer. A USB driver is needed when you try to flash a custom ROM, while trying to root or flash a new firmware to your Galaxy Smartphone.
DriverGuide maintains an extensive archive of Windows drivers available for free download. We employ a team from around the world which adds hundreds of new drivers to our site every day.

also to add: my disk is as follows: root> sardu menu and default files, all default hirens boot cd files, folder with exe files, folder with isos, driver pack solution windows executable (16gb by itself) then inside iso folder is acronis 2016 true image and universal boot, and 1 image of an xp system, win server 08 system, win 7 pro x86 and x64 system. after the image is installed on a system from acronis, you need to check achi/ide/raid setting in bios, and if still wont boot, run universal boot, then it should come up. then use driverpack solution (latest) to fill all the driver holes. then you should be fully up and running. rarely have i had to go find another driver on the manufacturers website and if i do, i will put that installable into the exe folder on my sardu disk, previously mentioned. this disk truly is the nastiest hack disk ive ever created and requires zero writing code or programming on my part. it may be one the most customized bootable, multi-faceted disks ever created. steve jobs and bill gates would probably want me to make them one, if they ever knew about it.
In this article I will describe how to install ClockworkMod Recovery and CyanogenMod on the Samsung Galaxy S3. By installing CyanogenMod your device will also be rooted. I have written this post while I was installing ClockworkMod Recovery and CyanogenMod on my own Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 (International). I provided the specific software download locations for the GT-i9300 and also the general download links in case you have an other model of the S3. You may also consider taking a look at the tutorial from the CyanogenMod website for your specific device. Also make sure that you have enough battery life throughout the whole installation procedure and to read the disclaimer before starting to follow this guide!
I assume that you are absolutely sure that you have installed the latest version of Clockworkmod Recovery for your device and downloaded the right version of Cyanogenmod for your device. In this case there are some things you can try to solve the problem. Here are the things I would try before doing anything else:1) Check again if you really have downloaded the right version of CWM and CyanogenMod 2) Update the installed android to the latest version (I assume you still have the stock Android from Samsung) by using the automatic update mechanism and retry installing CyanogenMod3) Try to install an older version of Cyanogenmod e.g cm-10.1.3-i9300.zip (this is for the i9300 aka international! ). If the installation works you can update CM to the latest version afterwards. 1e1e36bf2d
