  1. Look at your USB drive itself. Many have a very small switch on them that performs the write protection function. If yours is one of them, simply move the switch to the other position.

    If yours does not have the switch, you will need to go to the vendor's website to see if they have a utility to unlock your USB drive.

    Good luck!
  2. At times, you can also see if it's protected in the properties of the drive itself.
