How do I remove write protection from a usb drive?

Hi everyone,
I was just wondering if anyone knows how to remove write protection from a usb flash drive that doesn't have a write protection slider. The reason why I'm asking about this is because I have a usb flash drive and the write protection just kicked into place and it doesn't have a write protection slider so I don't know how to remove the write protection. Anyone know how to remove the write protection?

Is it Bitlocker-To-Go enabled from another computer? I'm saying another computer since you're on Pro and Pro doesn't have it.

I'm using the Pro version of Windows 7 and like you said, it doesn't have Bitlocker so how do I remove the write protection from a usb flash drive that doesn't have a write protection slider switch?
