    Guys this may sound stupid, but when I plug in usb stick I'm not able to tranfer pictures to it and I'm not able to change permitions either on pictures or usb stick. I looked at apple 101 but it stating that in info. under permitions I should be able to click lock icon to change it (I don't have that icon)

    It sounds like the usb stick may be formatted for NTFS, which can't be altered by OSx without addon software. You should be able to just format the usb stick in disk utility though.
