I've got a whole bunch of directories and files, formerly on debian,
burnt to CD, that XP will only see as ALLCAPS.
Are you sure the disc is formatted with a filesystem that allows for
lowercase characters? The ISO 9660 standard is a least common
denominator standard, which means 8+3 characters, case insensitive.
UDF, Juliet, and RockRidge allow for different semantics, but they all
have their quirks too (Juliet is also case insensitive, for one, and
that's the format most versions of Windows will read, if multiple
filesystem headers are present. Adaptec/Roxio burning software may
change this to UDF on install, but that's not entirely reliable).
