I have a simple command question that I haven't found the answer to yet. I have a usb flash drive plugged in to my newly created Ubuntu system. A df command shows this:

george@george-laptop:~$ df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdi1 231594420 8825300 211004724 5% /

/dev/sdj1 7808768 17152 7791616 1% /media/8G FLASH
george@george-laptop:~$

How do I change my directory to the flash drive? cd doesn't work.

Thanks

cd /media/8G\ FLASH

Case sensitive and \ followed by space where the file name contains a space.
