gdaladdo does not support multiple files.

You can put something like this in a .bat file:

for %%f in (*.jpg) do gdaladdo --config USE_RRD YES %%f 3 9 27 81

If you choose to do it directly at the commandline make sure you
use %f instead of %%f.  This difference has caused me to pull out
some hair!
