Ubuntu read only file system USB pendrive problem

Solution 1

Run this command to kill Nautilus (Files):
killall nautilus

Solution 2

Format using Gparted. That wiped all data in the disk and it turns out it also fixed the problem. 

Solution 3

When you attach your USB key to your laptop:
  • run sudo -i (so that you won't type your password all the time)
  • run df -Th(to see where your USB stick is mounted)
  • unmount your USB stick
  • run dosfsck on the device you saw from your previous command. Example: dosfsck /dev/sdc1
  • remove and reattach your USB stick
