Need to access external storage device from terminal window ,but cant sent the correct path tried cd /dev /sdb1 but it says no such file or directory what to do.

type lsblk in your terminal to find out what your device is named (first column) and if and where Fedora mounted it (last column). If it is already mounted you can access it... if not you need to mount it first.

You can't display files that way. Basically you'll first need to mount that device to some directory. Fedora should mount your device by default when you plug it in, of course if it has valid filesystem on it.

Could you please explain a little bit further which system are you using, why is it necessary to access those files via terminal and so on...
