Can you normally format or copy files to these USB drives?

I created a FAT32 USB drive with Minitool Partition wizard and copied all the files. I was just wondering about the tool... And yes, I can use those USB drives normally.

Strange if you normally do not have writing errors should not be problems.

In any case you must follow the various steps, first you must initialize the USB Drives with the Tool "HP_USB_Disk_Storage_Format_Tool", then with CMD "administrator user" you must run syslinux.exe that will copy two system files, then copy all other data as mentioned by the author.

HP_USB_Disk_Storage_Format_Tool is the culprit. Whenever I try to prepare a drive with it it always says that the drive is write protected. Using Win 21h2 and running it with admin privileges. MikeyG on his YT channel says that he sometimes has issues with it...

Have you tried the Pendrive on another PC?

Try with other software, try with Rufs, if the problem persists use a program that manages partitions on Windows and delete the partition leaving the Pendrive "raw" without partitions.

Yes. It's happened to me. I had to wipe the drive clean before the HP Tool would work. I then just formated the drive myself (Either Fat32 or NTFS) and then ran the syslinux command.
