Re: unable to Copy/Paste in pendrive.

You need to follow few steps :
  1. Right click on the pendrive and goto Properties.
  2. See if the "Read-only" Checkbox is Checked.
  3. If so than unchecked it and select "apply to all folders and subfolders" (if it is prompted).

IF this also won't work out than at last you need to format the pendrive and it will solve your Problem.

Have you tried to format your pen drive and after that checked whether the copy paste is working or not? Follow the steps given below to format the pen drive:
  1. Insert the flash drive and open “Computer”.
  2. Right-click the flash drive and select “format”
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
After formatting the drive, check that you can copy and paste files or move and copy files using drag and drop.
