    I re-jailbroke my iPhone earlier today after updating to 3.0.1 and using the 3.0 ispw file. Didn't have this problem, so I dpn't think it's a Vista problem.

    Are you sure you're browsing in the right spot for the file?

    try putting the firmware in the same folder as where you have your redsn0w files, and try again? and make sure, when you hit browse for file, it shows ispw. files as file types..

    download the ipsw again but not in safari
    safari does that sometimes

    or go to (in windows) folder settings (you can find it in search) then go to the tab view
    then uncheck:
    hide extensions for known file types
    then you can edit the iphone2,1.ipsw.zip to iphone2,1.ipsw
    and you can use it.

    i had the same problem and this worked for me
