the dev switch wasn't working for me, where mnt does- the second line i perform a cd /dev/cdrom to show, and again to the dest directory just to make sure that it is all correct. below is everything that I've tried.

THANKS! I was trying to find out how to do that. It wasn't working with the space, and I tried the 8.3 format (WILLIA~1) and the quotes seemed to work. that makes things so much easier! and thanks for bearing with me here, still a super noob to linux!
(for completeness, and the * will replace the space, so it does not fail, as sometimes it will think the folder name is only WILLIAM, vs WILLIAM SHU)
