    I'm not in front of my Mac right now, but very roughly from memory...

    cd /
    cd /volumes
    ls


    You should see a list of any internal, usb and network drives you have mounted and you can change to them using cd nnn, where nnn is the name (provided by ls above) of the drive you have mounted.

    hope this helps...

    From anywhere in terminal, type:

    ls /volumes

    which will list all drives.

    to change to the required drive you type:

    cd drivename
