    ubuntu 13.04 sansa clip can't cd to directory

    Hi
    I can't access my msc sansa clip from the console

    I can cd /media/user to see my media devices plugged in
    ls shows the directories for my flash drive and sansa clip

    I cd DE30-94A7 for the flash drive and works perfectly
    I cd sansa clip it says no such file or directory

    I can't cp (copy) any files to /media/user/sansa clip with console commands at all
    for example: cp /home/user/Documents/file.txt /media/user/sansa clip

    Strangly when I manually run a python script that uses shutil and copy files to this path "/media/user/sansa clip"
    It copies to the directory no problem.

    Why can't I access this sansa clip from the consol ??
    I have the device set to msc mode already and is accessible using any other clickable method

    I want to test cp commands in the consol / terminal so I can ad a line to my bash script.

    Please advise

    The shell doesn't parse file or folder names with spaces in them very well; you can either enclose the full path in double quotes: cd "/media/user/sansa clip" or use the backslash key like so: cd /media/user/sansa\ clip. If you use Tab completion the backslash will be added automatically, which is easiest.

    Also Linux is case-sensitive, so if the folder name is actually /media/user/Sansa\ Clip, you will need to specify that, but again, Tab completion makes this simpler.

    that makes sense thanks

    Guess it's time I should take some linux consol courses and some bash / sh script lessons

    Thanks again.
