Do you have an administrator account on the computer?  If not, then Windows won't let you.

Edit: Click the Start button, and at the top of the right column, you should see your account's photo.  Click on that, and it should tell you if your account is an administrator or a standard user.

using a software?  if so, which one?
usual ways to write  are copy files to the drive, or drag them - or use a program
also post some specs on the PC
