  1. For the pen drive:

    Some drives have a switch on them to lock it.

    i'v ran into a problem like that, and could not fix it untill i formated it, with a USB pen drive tool.

    The pen drive may be bad and need replacement.
  2. For the external hard disk:

    Try removing the drive from the external enclosure. Hook it up directly the computer.
    The enclosure may be defective.
