Have an SD card used in a Canon 60D DSLR. I have frequently connected this same card to my Windows 10 computer via usb port to download images. Last week, I copied some image files to my daughter's MacBook, no problems. Image files are still on the card, as I can look at them in the camera. However, my windows computer does not recognize the card. When I plug in the usb card-holder, Windows recognizes the drive, but does not see the content and asks that a card be inserted.

Did I reset something in the card when I used it in the Mac? If so, can I reset? Is this due to some windows update that corrupted some driver? Please advise.

Yes, possibly when you used it on the Mac it changed the file structure.
is the card itself actually recognised in disk management as against in windows explorer - This computer
Try first inserting the drive and then booting the computer as against inserting the drive with windows running

Disk Management
Right click bottom left - Microsoft flag

Or a more simple method to recover the photos would be to copy them from the MAC to a flash drive and then to your PC before using the camera or Windows to format out the card. Also it's possible the MAC removed the full sized photos while copying, but left thumbnails behind which Windows does not recognize as JPEG. I don't use MAC's so this is just a guess on my part.
