Hello farishi,

Please, try the following commands and let me know if they worked for you:
1. Open command prompt console on your PC
2. Type the following:
attrib -s -h -r X: /*.* / s / d Then hit "Enter" and wait about 30 seconds
Be careful! Respect the spaces between words and script. Change the letter X with that has been assigned to the USB device on your PC (that you can see it in My Computer. It can be anything, depends on each computer.)
3. Finally, browse the flash drive and delete the "RECYCLER" folder and if there is another one called "Autorun" you have to delete that too.

Good luck.

Hello again,

I'm sorry that didn't work for you.
Please, check if you have full control over the folders so that you can change the attributes.
Right-click the folder and select Properties.
Click on the Security tab.
Click Advanced in the lower right.
In the Advanced Security Settings window that pops up, click on the Owner tab.
Click Edit.
Click Other users or groups.
Click Advanced in the lower left corner.
Click Find Now.
Scroll through the results and double-click on your current user account.
Click OK to all of the remaining windows except the first Properties window.
Select your user account from the list up top and click Edit.
Select your user account from the list up top again and then in the pane below, check Full control under Allow, or as much control as you need.
You’ll get a security warning, click Yes.

Cheers.
