I have a MacBook Pro and havr a uSB flash drive plugged in. A df command shows:

Filesystem 512-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/disk0s2 976101344 258241344 717348000 27% /
devfs 216 216 0 100% /dev
fdesc 2 2 0 100% /dev
map -hosts 0 0 0 100% /net
map auto_home 0 0 0 100% /home
/dev/disk3s2 28520 22896 5624 81% /Volumes/Lab Tick
/dev/disk2s1 15617536 34688 15582848 1% /Volumes/8G FLASH

I am trying to change the active dirrectory to the flash drive but the following commands don't work:

rachels-macbook-pro:Users rachel$ cd/Volumes/8G/FLASH
-bash: cd/Volumes/8G/FLASH: No such file or directory
rachels-macbook-pro:Users rachel$
rachels-macbook-pro:Users rachel$ sudo cd /Volumes/8G/FLASH
/usr/bin/cd: line 4: cd: /Volumes/8G/FLASH: No such file or directory
rachels-macbook-pro:Users rachel$

What do I need to do?

George

Try this:
cd /Volumes/"8G FLASH"
or
cd /Volumes/8G\ Flash
You need to 'escape' the space in the name.
