First, make sure the media does not have a physical lock on it, like a slider, commonly encountered on SD cards, for instance. If it does, select the unlocked position.
next, you can go to My Computer> Right-click on the drive's letter> Properties> Security and make sure that you Allow the Write Permission on the security page.

Another way:

run->Type Regedit->search " StorageDevicePolicies" --> open Write Protected File and and change the value into " 0 "

If not found, you need to create the key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\
