My answer didnt seem to show up the first time: Hold shift. This tells windows to not do autorun while its being held. Hold it until the drive fully loads as a drive letter, give it a few extra seconds to be sure. Release, and you've got a drive. Do NOT double click the drive letter - this will run autorun, simply right click the drive and hit explore.
