Hi Pradeepsingh,

Do you have important data in the pendrive? I recommend you to open Disk Management and check if the drive has a proper file format. I presume it has a drive letter. Run Command Prompt and use the chkdsk F: /f command where F must be pendrive’s letter. Additionally you may try using the following commands:
Diskpart
List disk
Select disk n (n is the number of the drive)
Attributes disk clear readonly
Exit

Press Enter after every command. If the pendrive has a locking button, make sure it is not pressed. Let me know if there is any progress!

Hope this helps
