    You can change directory (CD) without leaving the drive you are on. You can switch to the other drive, as has been said, just by typing its letter - like this...

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>cd d:
    D:\

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>cd d:\videos

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>d:
    d:\Videos>c:
    C:\Windows\System32>
