'usb flash disk' you said and assuming thats what you actually meant there should be a physical notch that you slide to remove the write protection.
you can only check the attributes of the drive to see if its 'read only'. i could give you a complicated command promt command for that OR i could link you to a file attribute changer that has proven handy.

once installed you right click on the device and see if the check box in front of the 'read only' option is checked
