Why does Windows prompt me to eject the HDMI Expansion Card?

@CSab6482 the USB C and USB A cards are just simple passthrough cards with little to no circuitry. The HDMI card, on the other hand, is technically a dock that requires its own driver. Anything that has its own driver also gives the option to eject it whether that’s necessary or not.


Thank you! Ejecting is mainly for anything that has data on it though, right? So I would be okay to just remove the HDMI Expansion Card, but I would probably need to eject a 250 GB Expansion card, right?

Definitely. Ejecting it might shut down the monitor it’s connected to, but not much else.

The storage card will need to be ejected in most cases, unless the volume is set to “optimize for quick removal” (right-click, properties).
