If your File system on pen drive is NTFS then Ubuntu might not remove it
even after changing the permission until and unless the complete module of
NTFS file system is installed/loaded. So in that case use any disk
partitioning software and convert the file system to any other like FAT,
ext3 etc and format.After formatting bring the pendrive to your windows and
reformat to your desired filesystem.

PS: You will lose all your data doing this.
