    One more favor:

    Go back into device manager again, open properties, then the driver tab. What driver version is shown and who is listed as the "Driver provider"?

    Yep, that's the latest driver available on Windows Update Catalog.

    Well, heck, I'm a bit stumped.

    Question: Do you have another computer on which you could try that same card reader? If so, does it behave the same on another PC or only on this one?

    Just to add another data point, I tried this same operation with a different SD-card reader entirely, a Saicoo USB3 multi-card reader, and it has exactly the same issue; inserted cards are recognized with no problem, but when the card is removed from the reader, Windows doesn't ever seem to be aware that the removal has occurred...

    This suggests to me, that the issue is with Windows settings, rather than device-driver configuration; most of these usb-adapter interfaces are years old, and use generic Windows drivers...

    LOL, that's exactly where I was headed. If it worked on another system, more than likely it's something else on this machine affecting it.

    One interesting aspect is the behavior when you run diskpart. I'm guessing it is rescanning for devices and that is why it drops off the list at that time. It sounds like something is interfering with the disk removal detection.

    I'll do some more research, but I'm not sure how much more I will find. Will let you know!

    My apologies for not have found a resolution yet.

    ooooh... interesting idea!!
    I have a Microsoft Surface Laptop...

    Different version of windows, it is Version 6.3.19041...
    But this operation works *fine* on it, with the Saicoo card; inserting a card brings up Explorer with the card listed...
    Removing the card from the reader, closes Explorer...

    So what changed between 6.3.19041 and 6.3.19042 ???

    The 19041 is not really the important part. 19041 indicates Windows 10 version 2004 whereas 19042 is Windows 10 version 20H2. What would be more interesting is the number that comes after that. For example, 19042.870 is Windows 10 20H2, with the March 18, 2021 out-of-band updates applied.

    Note that 19041 and 19042 share the exact same updates, that's why I say that they are not important. It's the patch level (the number after that) that is of interest to us.

    Well, that presents an ambiguity for me...

    My desktop machine is :
    Windows 10 Pro
    Version 20H2
    OS Build 19042.867

    But my laptop machine doesn't show *any* of this data at all!!
    The entire Control Panel: Home page is entirely different, has the older system-info layout.
    What I get on 'This PC: Properties' is "View basic information about your computer",
    rather than "About", with the new menu down the side, and the Windows Specifications at the bottom...
    I don't know how to find this detailed info on the older Windows System layout...

    If you open a command prompt, what does the first line say?

    HAH!!! Very excellent, thanks!!!

    I always use tcc for console, not cmd.exe, so I've never looked at that before...
