External harddrive FAT32- VFAT options (uppercase to lowercase file name translation)
I have mounted an external western digital harddrive (Model WD800B008-RNN).
I formatted the drive as FAT32 so that I can share it with windows XP on a dual boot system.
The problem is that whenever I create a file through linux on the drive the filename is being converted to lowercase.
-rwxr--r-- 1 root root 0 Mar 20 09:18 afile*
Note that I created the file with uppercase but that it is being reported as lowercase.
Here was what mandrake 9.2 install placed in /etc/fstab
none /mnt/win_f supermount dev=/dev/sda1,fs=vfat,--,umask=0,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu 0 0
I have been googling and reading the man pages on fstab and mount and I have tried this...
dev/sda1 /mnt/win_f vfat,posix=1,shortname=mixed,umask=000 0 0
This did not work either. I still get a lowercase filename.
What options for mount should I use to fix this problem?
