Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

There may not be an exact answer to this but the first thing to check is by looking at the memory card (assuming an SD card) is for the tiny button that locks the card to prevent accidental loss of data. It's on one side of the card and usually has the word "lock" beside it.

If that switch doesn't exist on your card, you may need a Registry tweak or the card may just be a dud.

There are different methods.
Does the pen drive have a sliding bar on it, which is set to protect ?

Try to format the drive before you use it.

This link contains info to write protect or disable write protect USB.
