Some flash drives have a write protect switch on them....look around the device (most are on the side of the device) there is usually a small switch that you can usually flick with a pin.

Here is an example of what some switches on flash drives look like

If that does not help, or there is no switch then it is likely that the device is broken, and there is nothing else that (usually) can be done.

You have to create a partition before you can format.
