    If it truly is a "write-protected" problem, try step 6 here: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-fix-write-protection-errors-on-a-usb-stick/

    If that makes no difference, the pen drive probably has corrupted memory chips so throw it away and buy a new one (not Toshiba, they are no longer a quality brand like they used to be in my opinion. Started going downhill about four years ago, cutting manufacturing costs to compete with the cheaper brands).
