Default Problem with USB stick

I slotted the top of a USB stick into my android phone to copy material from the stick onto the phone. When I subsequently slotted this same USB stick into my laptop and tryed to copy files to it from the laptop I got the error message 'The disk is write-protected'. I've googled this already but its the fact that I used it with my phone that has caused the problem as it worked fine beforehand. Appreciate any help.

PC Maestro on Princes St. will take a look at it for ya and generally won't charge if they can't fix it.
