I have a macbook pro with OS Lion.  I have 3 usb flashdrives and all of them have suddenly become write protected. There is no switch on the stick.  I believe the problem started after I bootcamped my computer and began running windows 7.  I was trying to transfer files from the windows side to the mac side and now the flashdrive cannot be opened from either, or any other computer.  Any ideas to get it working again?  It's an 8g SanDisk cruzer facet flashdrive.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
