Windows 7: Cannot change drive in command prompt using CD

Cannot change drive in command prompt using CD

When I try to switch to D drive it stays in C:

C:\Users\Valdis>cd d:
D:\

C:\Users\Valdis>cd D:\Downloads

C:\Users\Valdis>cd d:
D:\Downloads

C:\Users\Valdis>


Feels stupid to ask this question.. I checked cd Change Directory which confirms that I was doing it correctly. Any idea what could be a reason for this?

EDIT:
Ahh, stupid.. I just had to type the drive without CD to change it..

Hello Voldemarz,

You could do this by just typing D: and pressing enter.
