  1. Some drives have a switch on them to lock it.

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

    The pen drive may be bad and need replacement.
  2. also check the root, if it's not set to read only. (much like you can set a folder to read only).
