I just can't figure out how to do this. I'm quite beginner with the terminal, I have no problem to browse between files with "cd", but don't know how to browse a different device than my hard drive (the BOOTCAMP partition for example).

Thanks for your help.

Edit : i need to do this in command line, since I have to do it from the rEFIt shell.

cd /Volumes

You should see your other devices listed there.


If you aren't sure how to type the path to a file/folder in Terminal, you can drag-and-drop it from the Finder. For example, type "cd " (be sure to type the space after cd), then drag in the volume/folder/whatever. This works great for things you don't know the path to, as well as things with weird characters in the filename (spaces, Kanji, whatever).

    ...but: be sure to NOT drag from the sidebar, as that will make your shortcuts disappear -- though with a nice "poof" ;-)

  • Good point -- Finder sidebar items are not draggable. Dec 6, 2010 at 17:02
  • Well, they are draggable, but dragging has a different meaning to/from the sidebar. ;-)
