Is there anything similar to holding Shift in Windows for temporary disabling the inserted disc autoplay?

I know it's an option you can turn off, but a button combo to not autoplay as you insert a disc? Good question. – Matt Blaine Jul 8 '10 at 15:39
@Matt Yeah I know about disabling it completely, sometimes I just want to insert a disc without playing it right away. – serg Jul 8 '10 at 15:53
I think if you use the dashboard icon to close the tray after putting the new disc in (instead of closing it manually) then it skips autoplay. Not 100% sure though (can't test currently), and this obviously couldn't be used to skip autoplay when first booting the console up. – Rudism Jul 9 '10 at 19:29

Unfortunately, there is no way similar to holding Shift in Windows to temporarily disable autoplay on Xbox 360.
