Windows 7: PC indexes DVD before opening folder to view files

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
PC indexes DVD before opening folder to view files

I have several DVD's with 60,000 files on them. (these come from a vendor) When I try to open them it takes an hour before I can view the files. I think it is because it tries to index the DVD before it opens. Does anyone know of any way to turn this off?

If we open it on an XP computer, it just opens.

Any help is appreciated.
