htacess with uppercase letters

I am trying to set up a redirect on the second link with the FormDonate page.
but the redirect only works when the page is lowercase.
what did i do wrong?
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*$
    RewriteRule ^mobile\/formdonate\.html$ "http\:\/\/www\.example.com\/donate\.php" [R=301,L]
   
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*$
    RewriteRule ^mobile\/FormDonate\.html$ "http\:\/\/www\.example\.org\/donate\.php" [R=301,L]

don't use mixed case just use lowercase if you want predictability.

because mixed case is normally not supported. is apache also running on a linux server? if not it definitely is not supported.

is there a way i can force the pages to be in lowercase , and then the next rule will be the lowercase version?

Windows doesn't care about case in filenames, Linux requires the exact case in filenames.  You can add 'CheckSpelling on' in your .htaccess file to get Apache to ignore case.  http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_speling.html

Just try these one  
RewriteRule ^mobile\/formdonate\.html$ "http\:\/\/www\.example.com\/donate\.php" [QSA,L,NC]

Use of the [NC] flag causes the RewriteRule to be matched in a case-insensitive manner.
