Try going into the ntfs permissions of that drive when it is plugged in and see if you are allowed access. These are the step
1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the flash drive
3. Click properties on the menu that shows up
4. Click the security tab

Under the groups or user names area check to see that you are in there or part of a group that is. Click on the appropriate selection and down below it will tell you what permissions you have for that drive. If your not on the list you can add yourself and give yourself proper permissions if you are allowed to with your account.
