I don't remember DOS that well, but I always change to the drive and then choose the directory in 2 separate commands.

If I'm at

C:\windows and want to get to d:\music

I would

d:

cd music

for instance.

Correct
When cd'ing a path on a different drive, you'll then need to get into that drive in a separate command.
cd D:\XXX
D:
or
D:
cd XXX
will both work.

If you want to change the drive in the same command you'd need to use the SWITCH /D

cd/d F:\Movies
