If you are running Windows 7 (and assuming the drive does not have a physical lock and if a flash drive it is not really old and worn out preventing further writes) do this:

Plug the device in, perhaps into a different USB port, then use diskpart to change its attributes:

Open the command prompt box with right click and run as administrator

Type each of these commands one at a time in this order:
list volume
select volume n (where n = the problem volume)
attributes disk clear readonly
attributes volume clear readonly

After each of the last two you should get a response that it was successful.
