In Linux we make directories, not folders. You should first mount the drive, cd to it, and then do ->
# mkdir -p /dev/sda/photos for instance.
If you want to make another directory under your user directory, then do ->
$ mkdir -p ~/new_directory because ~ stands for /home/username, in my
Some good reading ->
$ man mkdir
Post back if you need more help!
