Error Flashing ROM via Clockwork Recovery

I did a quick search for this (albeit a hasty and likely incomplete one) but I'm not really sure what, exactly, I should be searching for; if this has already been addressed/answered, please point me in that direction.

I've got a Fascinate that is stock in every way except that it is rooted and has Clockwork Recovery. Whenever I try to flash a ROM, either by telling RM to flash or by rebooting into recovery and flashing the package from the SD, I get an error that it cannot mount /dev/block/mmcblk0 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0p1).

I have done some reading and it looks like this might be a Voodoo issue (whatever that is), but unless Voodoo was preinstalled, or somehow installed during my root (which I can't remember the exact process I used now), that just doesn't make sense. Any help would be appreciated; I want this thing to stop lagging and freezing, and I want it to 'just work' like my DInc does with CM7 (problems with adding appointments to the calendar, etc.).

When you boot into recovery which recovery do you boot to, stock blue recovery, red, or green?

Well, I don't have the Fasc with me at the office, so I can't look to be sure, but I can't recall seeing anything that would tip me to what 'color' the recovery is... what would I be looking for to determine that? Words, images, etc.?

The colors refer to the actual color of the text when you boot to recovery

If memory serves, it is green (though it may be blue... definitely NOT red, though).

You probably boot to blue, then have to use apply sdcard:update.zip and then go to green cwm. There is a new red cwm that everyone is using with Froyo. I'm guessing since you are still stock you are either on build DL09 or may have done the OTA to EA28.

Try flashing this CWM through ODIN:
Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

Delete any update.zip you have on your sd card and download this one to the base of your sd card:
MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

Just checked, it boots into green without needing to do anything else.

You don't do the update.zip in cwm all. completely disregard that, and just follow the instructions in the clockwork thread.
