Need help with simple RewriteRule

I'm trying to redirect all requests to www.mysite.com/fdc to www.mysite.com/products/fdc

The rewrite stuff from my .htaccess file is posted below.

I don't understand why the fdc RewriteRule (line 5 below) isn't working.  But, it only directs me to my 404 page.

Any ideas on how to get this working?  Also, how to make it case insensitive?   That way it'll direct from www.mysite.com/FDC as well.

Thanks for your help!!

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule (.*) /$1.php [L]

May be missing R-Flag? (NC = no case)

You may speed-up your last rule, the rule-pattern is being processed before conditions are applied.
