You can remove write protection from your usb flash drive using the below method:

a. Open start menu, in the search bar type regedit and press enter. This wil open the registry editor.

b. Navigate to the following path:


If the registry key StorageDevicePolicies does not exist, you will need to create it manually.
c. Highlight StorageDevicePolicies, and then create a New DWORD (32-bit) Value named as WriteProtect.
d. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right window and set the value to 0 in the Value
Data Box and press OK button
e. Restart your computer and try copying files into your USB drives.

If you don't have StorageDevicePolicies, just create a new key under Control by edit, new, key. Then create the DWORD in that key also with edit, new, and DWORD.
