Use the free & excellent TrueCrypt click here (USB version also available) or FreeOTFE click here.

Remember with either of the above, the encrypted store folder itself can be deleted, so always keep a backup of the data stored in them in another location. G

Some pen drives have a Protect Switch on the edge, sometimes very tiny, so might need a very close look in order to see it.
