Physically examine the USB flash drive for some sort of write protection switch. If you find one, then move it to the unlock position. Else, proceed as follows:

Step 1 - Connect the USB flash drive to the computer

Step 2 - Press and hold the Windows key + R to bring up the Run box

Step 3 - In the Run box, type diskpart.exe to launch the diskpart command-line utility. Click Yes, if prompted whether to allow the program to make changes to the computer

Step 4 - In the command prompt - DISKPART> type LIST DISK

Step 5 - Carefully go through the list of disks and identify your USB flash drive, taking note of the disk number. Assuming there is only one internal hard drive installed on the computer and there are no additional external drives connected, then your USB flash drive will be labelled Disk 1. You may also verify the capacity in the size column

Step 6 - Type SELECT DISK # (where # is the corresponding disk number that you identified in the previous step). For example, Select Disk 1

Step 7 - Type ATTRIB DISK CLEAR READONLY
