How to remove write protect on my usb flash drive

Did the files come from another PC / user. If so, Win 7might require you take ownership. Right click > Security. Also some Micro SD cards attach to a regular SD adapter and that has a write protect small dip switch. Try that.

My computer do not recognized my Sandisk Cruzer Micro 1.0 GB.

I had the same exact problem on my 8G card. It worked fine in the camera, but when I plugged it into the card reader it flashed once and then the light went off. So, I put the card back in the camera and ran a USB cable from my camera (there was a port on the side of my Cannon Powershot that was smaller than a USB, but I don't know what to call it) to my computer. When I turned the camera power on, the computer was able to read the 8G card while it was inside the camera. I downloaded everything to my computer at that point. Hope this helps! I got the chord from my external hard drive and that fit from the camera to the computer.
