  1. The pen drive may be bad and need replacement.
  2. Some drives have a switch on them to lock it.
    Can you read the data on it, could be that the files are write protected not the drive. Otherwise bin it and get a new one, they are quite cheap now.
  3. i'v ran into a problem like that, and could not fix it untill i formated it, with a USB pen drive tool.

  4. Look on the end of the drive for a tiny switch.
