Same issue here, had it for a long time. Can also confirm that "killall
nautilus" solves it. Still an issue on Ubuntu 16.10.

Title:
  Nautilus says the USB stick is read only when it is not

Status in Nautilus:
  Incomplete
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  First time I use an USB drive since I updated to 12.04 and I found a
  really annoying bug on Nautilus. Nautilus claims that the destination
  drive is read-only when in fact it is not.

  How to reproduce:

  1. Connect a USB stick drive to your competer.
  2. The USB will appear in the desktop.
  3. Open two Nautilus windows one in your home folder, other in the USB stick 
drive.
  4. Select any file from your home folder (small enough to fit the free space 
in the USB drive)
  5. Drag the file and drop it in the USB drive window.

  -- Nautilus will say that it cannot copy the file because the
  destination is read ony --

  If you try the copy the same file with the terminal you will see that
  the file is copied without problem, other programs like gedit or
  LibreOffice can write in the usb stick drive just fine.

  It is not a problem with the USB stick, as shown here:

  [ 6234.212740] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk

  The permisions on the removable drive are set correctly:

  sergio@shana:/media$ ls -lah

  drwxr-xr-x 23 root   root   4,0K jul  3 11:01 ..
  drwx------  5 sergio sergio 4,0K dic 31  1969 DESIGNPLUS

  There is enough free space in the drive:

  sergio@shana:/media/DESIGNPLUS$ df -h

  /dev/sda2         50G  5,5G   42G  12% /

  /dev/sdb1        1,9G  681M  1,2G  36% /media/DESIGNPLUS

  A file can be copied to the USB stick using the cp command for
  example.

  sergio@shana:~/Trash$ cp wireless.txt /media/DESIGNPLUS
  sergio@shana:~/Trash$ cd /media/DESIGNPLUS
  sergio@shana:/media/DESIGNPLUS$ ls -lah

  But nautilus just dennies to copy the file claming that the
  destination is read only, when it is not.

  I tested it with two different USB sticks in two different computers
  running Ubuntu 12.04 and the same result.
