As I understand, you are using vista right? You should try formatting the 
pen drive in an XP PC and see if the same problem persists. You can also try 
for check error button which is located under one of those tabs in device 
property. Also if the device has a switch, you may try turning it off to 
make sure that it is not right protected. Hope this helps and hey, welcome 
to the problematic vista world.
