Removable flash drive showing up as local disk...!!

I bought a new SanDisk 16 gb USB flash drive few days ago and it is showing up with the lock disks. Please give some solutions such that I shows as removable drive.

Many newer flash drives are now Fixed rather than Removable.  It’s due to a new Windows 8 requirement.  Best to return the drive and buy one not Windows 8 compatible.
