Upper and lower case problem when mount hardisk

I mount my removable hardisk into /media.

IN winxp all file names in my hardisk are displayed by upper case character. However, After mounting hardisk I found that all file names
at the mount point of /media are displayed by lower case. For this problem
I can not start the installation of A CAD software. But there are many files in
my hardisk. Changing these file names manually is very boring.
I wonder some method to change file names by once?

shell script? some Command?

Thank you!

toupper will change case from lower case to upper case. You could put that command in a simple script to recursively work through directories changing filenames.
