If you are typing DIR by itself then you are running DIR on drive 0. Either type:

DRIVE 2,#0

or type:

DRIVE 2,#0

Note the lack of the ,#0 on the second drive command.

Read through this, it should help with the basic disk system commands, although it won’t include SDC extensions like the ,#0 to the DRIVE command: http://www.colorcomputerarchive.com/coco/Documents/Manuals/Hardware/Color%20Computer%20Disk%20System%20-%20Quick%20Reference%20Guide%20(Tandy).pdf <http://www.colorcomputerarchive.com/coco/Documents/Manuals/Hardware/Color%20Computer%20Disk%20System%20-%20Quick%20Reference%20Guide%20(Tandy).pdf>
