Unhappy USB flash disk somehow gets read-only


I am using Ubuntu(gnome enviroment) and have all updates.
when I plug my flash-disk on it gets mounted and everything is normal

but after I try to write or change sometng on it I have "this is a read-only disk" message?

anyone with any solution?

it is FAT and If ı re-mount it it goes read-write but that doesnot solves the problem that why it goes with no reason read-only

also I just reailized that it goes read-only every time I view the properties of the disk drive
