Your PC which is not able to access the USB stick is probably infected. There are 1000's of viruses / malware out there causing such issues. They propogate through the Autorun feature of flash drives.

The other PC not having problem has probably autorun turned off. On the Clean PC, enable "show hidden files and folders" & "show System files" by going to Control Panel >> Folder options >> View Tab.

Plug the USB drive, look for autorun.inf files in it along with .exe files. Delete those files.

Scan the Infected Pc with Malware. Plenty of Articles on Experts Exchange on Malware. Refer to those-

Hi,
Check if the usb stick has a lock button. Other solution is to format it.

1. take backup of all files on Flash to some secure location
2. Format it from the PC where the problem is occuring.
3. Retry copying files TO flash ;-)
