Default USB flash drive changes to read-only on the fly

This might be a silly question, but it is very frustrating.

I have this memory stick, a 2 GB one formatted with FAT32.

I was working on a .C file stored on the memory stick, saving as I made progress with the code. Then all of a sudden I cannot save anymore. I get an error saying the disk is read only. I cannot create new folders or files or anything. chmod doesn't work, it simply says read only partition. What the hell?

Could it be because I compile directly on the disk? I use the disk a lot at university and it is much easier to just work directly on the disk.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
