    What is the filesystem on the drive? Is it a filesystem that carries over privileges, such as ext?

    Do you mean the pen drive is formatted with NTFS?

    If you setup your pen drive without persistence, it thinks it is a cd-rom, which is read only.

    Using the System Startup Disk Creator allows you to create a pen drive with an area that is read/writable.
