You can remove write protection from ur pen drive and unlock it by following the below steps:

  1. Open Start menu, in the search bar type regedit and press enter. This will open the registry editor.
  2. Now goto the following path:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
  3. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right window and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK button
  4. After that restart your PC and try to copy the files into your pen drive again.

I hope it will work..

    Might be the pen drive is virus affected. It is better make the pen drive virus free by using a good anti-virus tool (u can use MWAV).  If not possible, and if possible, take all backups of ur data from pen drive and simply format it.
