A couple of checks

Check to see if the USB drive has a small switch for write protection.

Windows can write protect USB drives. Check out the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies. The value 'WriteProtect' should be absent or set to '0'.

or you can copy and paste this at a command prompt to run it. Log off and back on for it to take effect.

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies /v WriteProtect /t REG_DWORD /d 0
