    Have you used the flash drive before, without problems? Does it contain any important information?

    1. First, check if it has a switch to activate/deactivate write protection.
    2. You could try to do a low-level format (WARNING: This will erase any information on your flash-drive). There are many tools for this, just google, or try HDD Low Level Format Tool.
    Good luck

    Does it work on another computer?
