WD Elements 12TB (WDBWLG0120HBK-NESN) - Issues When Ejecting Drive then Connecting Again

I own 5 of these same exact external hard drives and typically connect one at a time.

Mac Mini:
macOS Big Sur
11.2.3
M1

After fully successfully ejecting one drive and connecting another drive, most of the time the new connected drive will not show up in the “Finder” window.
I have to restart Mac Mini in order for it to show up, very inconvenient.

Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated!
