Default basic DOSBOX problem

Hello I'm new here so sorry if this is stupid

I have saved the game Crisis in the Kremlin (saved as Crisis) in a folder called Oldgames in the C drive on my computer.

I've opened up dosbox and put in the command
that works fine so then I put in
Which also works fine. So then I put
C:\>CD Crisis
And I am then told that it is 'unable to change to Crisis'. Sorry about this. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help gladly received.

When on C:\> prompt in dosbox input dir /w
If 'crisis' dir isn't listed dosbox won't find it, of course.
Also check for typoz?
Eventually correct typoz in /oldgames/ folder whilst in windows...... dosbox restart needed, or renew cache (dosbox readme)
