    I'm trying to change the directory path in a program.

    In windows I use to type c:/directoryname/directoryname/

    In OSX the drives have names so do I type "drive_name/directoryname/directoryname/ ??

    OSX is like any other Unix. All drives are mounted into a single, unified, tree with a root at /. The boot drive is mounted at /. Any other drive will be, unless you have done something odd, mounted in /Volumes/
