This is the pathname my Macintosh gives me for a particular file
"Macintosh HD/MoveOver/Cards 1 to 1000"
Yet here's what happens when I use it
data = Import [ "Macintosh HD/MoveOver/Cards 1 to 1000"]
Import::nffil: File not found during Import. >>
I must be doing something wrong. I apologize for such a simple question, but I've spent all day on this including a visit to the local Apple store.
Somehow the following appeared which makes moving things much easier
You can also insert the path of a folder or a file by simply using drag and drop in combination with a keyboard shortcut.
In Mac OS X, first navigate to the file or folder. Click and drag it over a notebook, and then hold down the key when releasing the mouse button:
Typically on a single disk Mac you just omit the disk name and start with the root level of the drive with / IE:
data = Import [ "/MoveOver/Cards 1 to 1000"]
If you have multiple disks and you need to specify which one, the full path is
data = Import [ "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/MoveOver/Cards 1 to 1000"]
