What version of iOS are you using and what jailbreak method?

Also did you remember to close iTunesHelper.exe like what is said in the wiki?

Is it the same problem as your original post?

Can you try waiting until Windows XP has properly detected your iPhone in Recovery Mode before entering the command?

You'll know it has if iTunes opens up and tells you that it has detected an iPhone in Recovery Mode.  Close iTunes after it opens.
