I input for e.g, "C:" it works, basically, if i input a hard code
string inside os.listdir it works, but if i stored the string that the
user keyed inside a variable and run os.listdir with the variable,
there is that error. But inputing hard code string inside os.listdir
isn't what I want when I am writing this program.
