How to force a file to complete (flush) to USB Flash Card reader

My USB flash card reader works fine. However the Windows lazy write forces me to use the USB "Unplug or Eject Hardware" to force the system to flush the file to the reader.

Is there a simple way to do this. The "Unplug or Eject Hardware"  is such a pain to use, require multiple mouse clicks and the device must be unpluged and pluged back in on the USB to get it to "see" another card.
