    Have you ever been able to write data to this USB? Is it a 'software install' USB that you are trying to re-use?
    The USB has a few Gb of my mom's files on it, so we've been able to read/write files onto it before.

    Then it may be, as I suggested before, that the internal controller has detected a fault and gone 'write protected' to preserve the data. I'd copy the files ASAP from the USB in case it's about to die.
