Changing dr-xr-xr-x to drwxr-xr-x

I have no writing privileges for root, user, nor group.

After copying Fedora 14 iso image to my USB flash drive, I attempted to take it off to install another distro for mult-ibooting, but was not able to delete the content. I am stuck with no writing privileges on my USB drive.

Here is what may have caused it. When removing the content that was on it before to a /data directory, I accidentally removed the flash drive title = 4003-6F40. So I have directory 4003-6F40 in my /data file. Then after copying Fedora-14 to USB, Fedora-14 is now acting as the title of my USB pen.

(Side note: I never installed using my USB pen because it was before I learned of syslinux, which is what brought me to this issue now that I am trying again to use my USB to install.)

I have only found information on this topic for Windows related problems.

Does anyone know how to restore writing privileges to a user?
