    If you iphone is not in bootable state then TU cannot see it. Alright you can find out yourself, download USBview, run it as your state of iphone in recovery/DFU mode. Click option and select config decriptor and hit refresh.
    Then scroll down to see the apple device connected and click right pane, search over there , you will find your ECID 16 digis.
    Write it down , it is the ECID for your iphone, always the same.

    Did you go into advanced options and try to grab 3GS 4.0.1 from cydia? If it says you are too late then you are too late.

    Did you check for other SHSH for other firmwares? Which ones have you got stored?

    Yeah, if after Westoben's guide, you still cannot grab any shsh , then you are right, you are too late.
