Is the important thing here you'll need to either look on the makers web site or load any Specialized Software.

'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
