How to remove write protected in Lexar 4GB
You may need Administrator privileges on your computer.
Plug in flash-drive.
Allow time for Windows Explorer to read it.
Run AV scan if suspect.
To get a list of attributes:
Launch Start > Run > CMD.
From the command console enter
(or whatever the drive letter is for your flash).
to redirect output to a text file enter (example)
From the list you should see [H]idden, [S]ystem or [R]ead only attributes for write-protected files.
You can also do it via Win Explorer by right-clicking the drive icon.
Remove all above attributes.
As a last resort, you can full-format the entire flash via explorer.
Which should wipe all files / folders on the drive.

Lexar 16GB S73 appears as Innostor NAND Flash USB Device
USB flash devices don't need drivers. I believe you might have removed one or both of these drives from the PC without using the proper procedure, and the PC (or notebook) is now "confused". Re-attach one or both devices, but this time, either use (Windows) Explorer to "electronicaly" eject the device (right click, then choose eject) or use "Safely Remove Device" shortcut, usually on the bottom right=hand corner of your screen (the taskbar).
