    Hey Jakeay, Yes there is a difference between पता and जानना. पता is address of anyone but it is also used in 'know' sense. जानना specifically means 'want to know'. But during sentence construction both have different sense. For example:-

    मुझे जानना है की वहाँ क्या हुआ था ? (I want to know what happened there?)
    मुझे पता है की वहाँ क्या हुआ था। (I know, what happened there.)

    Hope it surely helps. :)
