Command Prompt Problem

Hipster Doofus

I'm pretty sure this is prior sp1.
When using the command prompt I can navigate in the partition I opened it in but if I try to change partitions or go to the cd rom I get this>
C:\cd D: gives me this
D:\

C:\

I can't get to the D drive. The attachment shows a bit more. Any suggestions?

Thats weird.... did you check to see if your drive letters got switched. Check thru Windows Explorer and or thru Computer Mangement. Just wondering if D:\ is now your CD ROM because that is a cd rom related error. If it couldnt detect the drive it would say 'Invalid Drive Specification'

HD - not sure I completely understand. The command to go from one partition to another is just the volume designation. IE, to go from c: drive to d: drive you would type:
d:

To change directories, you would type
cd \directoryname

Note there is a space adfter cd

If this isn't what you are having a problem with - or if it doesn't help - I should be around at the other place most of the day today....I'll be happy to try to work with you on it. Or you can email or PM.

I was a bit slower. I didn't figure this one out. Just kept going 'cd' enter ''cd' enter. Been trying for a couple of weeks now. Why can't this thread disappear? :eek: :eek:

Actually CD changes the directory. So if you are in d: and you type for example cd c:\documents and settings\local service it changes the active dir on C:, but your prompt stays on d:. Then when you type c: you will automatically go to c:\documents and settings\local service

Let me demonstrate:



C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService>cd \

C:\>d:

D:\>cd "c:\Documents and Settings\Lukas"

D:\>c:

C:\Documents and Settings\Lukas>



Greetz,
