What error is given when you attempt to copy and paste. Can you drag files into an open window of the flash drive? 

 

Open a command prompt and type:

 

diskpart

list disk

select disk X     X being the flash drive

attributes disk

 

What is the read-only status? If you could format it the read -only attribute should be Yes.
