ahh, i forgot how to fix this
but the problem is the space between the Program and Files
it thinks that you are simply saying cd program
its ignoring the files

try doing something like Program&Files or Program%Files
sorry i forgot exactly what it is you need to do

Just do
Code:
cd "Program Files"
or
Code:
cd /mnt/winc/"Program Files"
and remember, that program files, and Program files is not the same (letter case).

For another option try cd Program\ Files

Using the "\" to escape the space character.
