Windows is probably getting "confused"

I would try this first.

Unplug the AC adapter from your laptop.

Remove the battery pack.

Press the power button for a few seconds to discharge anything that remains charged.

Wait a few minutes, connect the battery pack, ac adapter and then boot your laptop

If that didn't resolve the problem,

Try drive cleanup. USB drive or flash problems? How to cleanup and remove old USB storage drivers - TechSpot OpenBoards

After the drive/r cleanup, each time you plug in a new USB device the driver will be installed afresh. Give them a distinct Volume Label and then check whether it sticks when you unplug and replug them.

If this also does not fix the problem then ........ I have to scratch my head further.

It happens with me too. I thought it might be the FAT32 file system.
