I have Win10-Home, ASRock X570 Creator motherboard and Kingston MultiCard reader. This MultiCard Reader is seen, the inserted USB stick not. BelenaEtcher does see all !
Some Multicard readers create a lot of entries, try if the USB stick does appear if you use your mouse's scroll wheel.

Hi!

The Raspberry Pi Imager utility is a nice alternative to BalenaEtcher and ApplePi-Baker.

+ ApplePi-Baker (both 2.2.3 and legacy 1.9.9) crashes on macOS 10.14.3.
+ Raspberry Pi Imager has a success rate of 66%: flashing goes fast but checking fails often.
+ BalenaEtcher is slow and always succeeds.

Are other users experiencing the same issue with Raspberry Pi Imager?

Regarding your 66% success rate for Raspberry Pi imager: how many trials was this? Did it succeed 2 of 3 trials? Or did you run more than 3 trials?
Raspberry Pi 1B, 3B+, 4B
