No, I do not have any USB drives connected. These are all my USB
devices:

(1) a USB printer
(2) a USB InfraRed 'dongle'
(3) my Epson 1250 scanner

Maybe I can tweak XP in some way to correct this behavior of
activating the scanner whenever I open the folder tree in Windows
Explorer?

Maybe you can unplug the Epson 1250 scanner from USB.

USB is a "hot" system, which means you can plug or unplug any device at any
time with shutting down the computer.

This is probably not the answer you want, but if I were you,
I would not mess with anything and learn to ignore it.

Things you may try to suppress this behavior may only cause
other problems, perhaps worse ones.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Typo: without shutting down the computer.
