Hi Kulkarnivl,

Please check if your pen drive has a protection button. Some models have it and if it is switched on, you won’t be able to remove the protection. If there is no such button, I would recommend you to run Command Prompt and type the following commands:
Diskpart
List disk
Select disk n ( n must be the number of the drive)
Attributes disk clear readonly
Exit

Check if the write protection is removed. For more suggestion or details, check the link below:

Hope this helps
