How to access the mapped network drives from the mingw shell? When I try

cd y: or cd /y or y:

All I get is No such file or directory or sh.exe y:: command not found.

I am able to access the same mapped Y: drive using cmd. I would like to know how to do the same using mingw shell.

Try cd /y/ to solve your problem

Care to explain why it works this way? – Ivo Flipse Mar 26 '12 at 13:22
I'm able to access the drive from mingw shell if the drive is actually connected. That is, if I double click and open the drive in Windows Explorer and then use Mingw to cd into it, then it works. – yasouser Mar 26 '12 at 15:00
