but due to certain problems sometimes flash or Pendrive can not copy and paste files and can only read files that are already available on the flash.
Error message that appears is "The disk is write protected". or can be seen in the image below.

Flash disk have a small button that makes the flash becomes read only
to prevent the virus from the computer owner to make flash / USB becomes read only
