Some flash drives have locks at the side that can switch the device to read-only mode, although it isn't very common.

You could also try diskpart to remove the device's 'read-only' attributes, as shown here. That should allow the disk to be formatted correctly again. Make sure the disk you select is the right one. After your usb flash is successfully formatted, you can check it with error tools such as H2testw. It also checks to see if your card genuine and not counterfeit
