Have a look on the side of the drive to see if there is a tiny switch to unlock it.

Hi there
As octal said, there should be a switch of some kind on the memory stick. I there isn't then do the following:
Plug it in the computer
Go to My Computer
Right click the drive with the Usb and click properties.
uncheck the Read-only box and click apply

Let me know how this works out for you
