    Change directory to flash drive
    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?

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