select ecid,smallcard,Hits from ecards where flash='True' order by ecid desc

      Set objCmdECards=Server.CreateObject("adodb.command")
      objCmdECards.ActiveConnection = stringConn
      objCmdECards.CommandText = "FlashCards"
      objCmdECards.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc

      ObjRsFlashCards.Open objCmdECards.Execute
      Set objCmdECards = Nothing

You need to use client-side cursor to get recordcount.  Also, remember, movefirst, movenext, etc are RECORDSET operations.

Try this

Set rsECards = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
rsEcards.CursorLocation = adUseClient
rsECards.Open "FlashCards", stringConn, 3,3

probably you should some articles about CursorLocation and CursorType (members of a recordset object)
Default the CursorType of a recordset is adOpenForwardOnly. Then you'll understand that moving to the first record is impossible. Also a RecordCount is not possible with this cursortype.

you're code may look like:
Set objCmdECards=Server.CreateObject("adodb.command")
     objCmdECards.ActiveConnection = stringConn
     objCmdECards.CommandText = "FlashCards"
     objCmdECards.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc

     Set ObjRsFlashCards = Server.CreateObject("adodb.Recordset")
     ObjRsFlashCards.CursorLocation = adUseClient
     ObjRsFlashCards.CursorType  = adOpenStatic
     ObjRsFlashCards.Open objCmdECards.Execute
     Set objCmdECards = Nothing

In this example the adOpenStatic lets you move through the recordset forward and backwards...
