weird bash and vfat behaviour

      I have a problem that's driving me mad. I have a number of files
on a USB mass storage device, with vfat as its fstype. when I "ls -l"
the things, my directory "COMP4015" comes up as "comp4015"
      I created a directory of the same name in my ~/ and it came up
grand under ls -l so I copied the contents into it. mv it to the USB
device again, and suddenly it's lowercase again! If I call it Comp4015
it's fine, as is COmp4015 and COMp4015, but when it's all capitals, it
displays it as lowercase. It displays fine on my windows box...  Is
this a bash problem? Is it something else altogether?
