It's defaulted to MTP mode and I have been unable to make Disc Drive mode work with my instance of XP Pro SP3.

does, however, work A-OK on my Windows 7 laptop.

The brass ring for me would be some non-root utility that defaults my Note to a Disc Drive mode that works with XP. Just click it and leave it in Disc Drive mode until I have some need for MTP.
