trying to exportfs an external drive that has a space in the pathname


the device mounts as /media/Easy Drive/ and i've tried inserting the pathname in /etc/exports as /media/Easy\ Drive/movies (the path to the directory i'm trying to share), and i get the following error (indicating that that isn't the way to enter it) :
Code:
bash-4.1# exportfs -a
exportfs: No options for /media/Easy\ Drive/movies: suggest Drive/movies(sync) to avoid warning
exportfs: /etc/exports [3]: Neither 'subtree_check' or 'no_subtree_check' specified for export "Drive/movies:/media/Easy\".
  Assuming default behaviour ('no_subtree_check').
  NOTE: this default has changed since nfs-utils version 1.0.x

exportfs: Invalid IP address Drive/movies
exportfs: Invalid IP address Drive/movies
exportfs: /etc/exports:3: unknown keyword "rw.nohide"
so how do i enter this path so it will work?

ok, put the path in double quotes "" and fixed the decimal (should have been a comma) between rw and nohide. now i get this error :
Code:
bash-4.1# exportfs -a
exportfs: /media/Easy Drive/movies does not support NFS export
bash-4.1#
it's a hitachi usb hdd, any ideas how to export it?
