Sometime last year I noticed that I could no longer do this on the XP command prompt window. Its been nerfed. Why? I do not know.
At first I thought it was because I was using it via a remote desktop session and thought nothing of it (apart from being annoying).
Just today, I realised it also affected my local sessions also. So off I went to discover a way to fix it.
Typing in "cd /?", I found this.
CD [/D] [drive:][path]I tried it and it worked.
Type CD drive: to display the current directory in the specified drive.
Use the /D switch to change current drive in addition to changing current directory for a drive.
What the hell?
C:\Documents and Settings\twig>cd d:So I guess now we have to use the new syntax to change drives using "cd".
C:\Documents and Settings\twig>cd /d d:
