You don't need to create any directories.  /media/sda7 is actually a
directory itself, called a mount-point.  The error you got before was
because of a typo.

Okay, you didn't need to, but it's good to organize anyway. :)  Can you run:

ls -al /media/sda7/Movies

just to make sure we're on the same page (I need to know the exact

It can actually be simpler to copy and paste than retype.

The old ones are expected to remain (after you're sure the new one is
correct, you can delete the old manually).

Steven, it looks like you made a couple mistakes.   First, you dropped
the -i.  Second, you dropped the space between "O Jerusalem I" and "O
Jerusalem II".  Both the -i and the space are required.

For future reference, when you see a line like this (with Usage and an
explanation of the command-line options), it usually means you messed up.

See.  It thinks there's a file called "O Jerusalem IO Jerusalem II"
because you dropped a space.

You put the -i this time, but you still had the spacing wrong.

As I said, do the ls (see above) so I know the current filenames, then
I'll give the correct command line.
