First try to see is there is any lock in your media device or adapter and see if its not locking the looks like slide switch .for one end it will lock the media and when you switch to other side you have the full access
but if that's not the reason it might be the problem with registry

Is there any switch on the flash drive? Is the drive full? If not it might be an idea to try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. To do that try:

  • Plug in the flash drive
  • Right click on My Computer
  • Choose Properties
  • Switch to the hardware tab
  • There should be a button like "Device Manager". Click on this.
  • Find your flash drive on this list. Right click on it and choose uninstall.
  • Unplug the flash drive, wait a few seconds then plug it back in.
  • You should now get a new hardware wizard dialog from which you can reinstall the drivers.
Use below link if above solution doesn't work

10)If the value data is 1 change it 0 and click ok.

11)Repeat steps 7 to 10 for ControlSet001, ControlSet002, and ControlSet003 if you have these they will be in a folder just above the Control folder.

12)Close Registry editor and restart the computer.

If it doesn't have a sliding "write protect" switch on it as shown in step 2, try step 5 or step 6 on this page:

Small sd cards have a small slider in the case itself. Flash drives may have partitions on the drive itself. One or two of these small partitions may have write protection on them that cannot be removed. If you have too much trouble, put the flash drive in a usb slot, wait for it to be recognized. Open the control panel and open administrative tools. Click on computer management and then in the left lower pane, click disc management. In the right pane, there will be a window that shows and lists all the drives and partitions. Look for your flash drive and you can delete volumes, partition the drive etc.

    USB flash drive write protection

    Most USB drives don't have a Write Protection switch, but if yours does, then move the slider.

    If it doesn't have a switch, the only way to use the drive is to format the drive. First, note the drive letter, such as E, F G for your drive. *** BE CAREFUL *** This will remove all files. Go to Windows Explorer, note the drive letter , Right-click and select Format. Again, BE CAREFUL not to format any other drive, just your removable USB drive.

    Hope this helps.
