vFat Partition on dsl not showing captitals in file names

I've noticed when I mount my pen drive in dsl all the filenames are forced to lower case. In ubuntu it works perfectly fine. I can't just rename files because of how the framework am using works. It has a strict naming convention which MUST be used for it to recognise the files. How do I fix this? I made it vfat just in case I ever need to copy it via windows or something.

can you post the output of your host /etc/fstab pls

leaping ahead...if you have no usb mention in there you may be using udev to mount removable devices and or Hal.
