Windows 7: CD command not working.

CD command not working.

Hi all

Don't know wether it's me doing something wrong or if something has broke.
Whenever I want to navigate to another drive it won't actually change path.
I am able to navigate to another folder within the C: drive, for example C:\Windows, but not to other drives..
Included a picture.

Help.

Yeah, it shows the drive, but then again it returns to C:\Users\TobbenTM .
Before I can do anything..

At least I thought it would show for example D:\ instead of C:\Users\TobbenTM all the time.

Can you post a snip of the disk management window? Click on Start button, type diskmgmt.msc then hit Enter. Use windows snipping tool to take a snip.

Well, found out the problem, figures it's me forgetting that you don't use cd to change drives, only folders.

Oh hang on, you're using the wrong syntax. If you want to change drives just type the drive letter. To change to D:, just type D: .

Adding the /D switch would have made the expected action happen
"CD /D X:\"
