  • Well, the command does work, it changes the current directory of drive D: to its root directory; it just doesn't change the current drive... – aschipfl Apr 23 at 8:27

You need to use option /d to change the current directory of the drive and change to that drive.
Or you can type the drive letter (c: in this example) to change to the drive.
