Default No access to "USB Storage" via Windows after upgrade to 4.1.1

I am no longer able to access the "USB Storage" device in Windows after upgrading to Android 4.1.1.
I have a Galaxy Nexus S 4G.
Prior to the upgrade, I could plug in my phone, enable USB Storage, and navigate my phone's folders in Windows.
I have not enabled fast charge and in fact have not made any kernel changes/ flashed the ROM.
I'm no longer able to do this... any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Yesterday was one of the rare days that I had the need to connect my phone to my computer (large file transfer), and found the same issue!

I enabled developer options (under settings), and unplugged/plugged to computer - and it worked. After transferring the files, I then disabled dev options.

That did not work for me.
(This does seem like odd behavior to me... since this would mean a reduction / removal in a feature)

Same issue. I wanted to add music to the phone (just got it yesterday) but couldn't access it via usb on a pc.
I used airdroid to accomplish it. Worked great. Though, I haven't had to remove anything from the phone yet... not sure if it works both ways with airdroid... I'm assuming yes.

That's an idea... but I'd rather this worked out right... When going to the "Devices and Printers" menu from Control Panel... I can right click on the the Nexus S4G (in the "Hardware" tab). When doing that, I get an error code (10) and it states that "This Device cannot start. (Code 10)"
