    Entering a mounted drive throught the terminal


    Hi,

    I'm new to Ubuntu. I have been using windows vista before I decided to try Ubuntu, and I have successfully mounted my old drive to Ubuntu. I can enter it fine from the GUI, but I can't figure out how to do it through the terminal. when i cd to /media, I can see my ACER drive, but I dont know how to enter it. Could anyone help me out?

    Thanks!

    Try this:
    Code:
    cd /media
    ls -l
    You'll see the list of files and directories listed. From there, you can cd into the sub-directories.

    I would suggest you to check Linuxcommand.org. A very good site to learn basic Linux commands.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thank you for your replies,

    I'm sorry, I think I was a little unclear in my question. I already tried to cd into the mounted hard drive, but I got an error. Something along the lines of "can't cd into the device". I can check what the exact error I'm getting is when I get home. When I run ls, the ACER har drive shows up in blue.
