    Welcome to MMi,
    If your trying to use redsn0w to jailbreak, you have to use 3.1.2 firmware, not 3.1.3 even though you are on 3.1.3/
    I would suggest you also use Firefox for your browser to download the firmware.
    Way better and more stable.

    Just wanted to add the official download links for both firmware and jailbreak tool.

    Firmware: iPod and iPhone Firmware Download

    Redsn0w: redsn0w 0.9.2 [iPhone Dev Team]

    And as blkcadi said, use Firefox to download. Other browsers have a tendency to change the ipsw into a zip file.
