Thanks for your posts. Yes, I agree with acchong and the methods should work.

Just for your information, there is a new policy for this purpose in Windows Server 2008.  In Windows Server 2008 domain, there are a set of built-in policies on removable storage access and installation. It makes restricting USB mass storage device more easier.

1. Computer Configuration–>Policies–>Administrative Templates–>System–>Removable Storage Access

    User Configuration–>Policies–>Administrative Templates–>System–>Removable Storage Access

It specify read and write permission on all kinds of removable storage device.

2. Computer Configuration–>Policies–>Administrative Templates–>System–>Device Installation–>Device Installation Restrictions

With device installation restrictions, the installation of removable storage device will be totally under control.
