I was hoping to set up software raid between a pair of SD cards (for redundancy) in an embedded device but as I understand it, I need to upgrade them to dynamic drives to do this.

The cards appear under 'Disk drives' in device manager and as drive D: / E: in 'My Computer'. If I look under 'Control Panel' > 'Administrative Tools' > 'Computer Management' > 'Disk Management', however, I can't see my SD card.

Is this simply not possible because SD Cards are considered removable media and windows isn't set up to allow it?

Correct, SD cards are considered removable, and as such will not be RAID'able.
