net use works i cant access shared directory

October 13, 2010 at 22:13:14
Specs: Windows 7, i7
I am running Win 7 and am trying to connect to server 2008.
When I type net use I see the remote location

Status Local Remote
OK M: \\192.168.1.101

So I know I have a connection but when I try to access the directory I get this.

C:\users\nate> cd M:\
M:\

C:\users\nate>

As you can tell I cant access the directory so whats the issue?

M:\
cd M:\

First step jdimstrnate is to learn the proper commands and their syntax.
You do not cd to a drive letter per your example cd m:\ which is why it did not work.

To get the syntax info use /? For example cd /?
