Default Problem with flash drive.

I just bought a brand new flash drive from the kennedy space center and when i tried to use it it had an album filled with pictures. When i tried to delete them it said i couldnt because it is write-protected. There is no external switch or program that came with it. Can anyone help? Please reply.

That is probably encrypted. What are you trying to do? Can you just format it?
