Since a domain installation with Server 2003, some users cannot access their usb thumb drives. The computer will recognize them at first, beeping and blink the led on the drive twice, but will not show up to access. Gave a user full admin rights in the domain and still same. Log off and back on as Admin or other user with admin privileges and works  fine. Tried permissions with the usbstor.inf and .pnf and registry \system\currentcontrol\services\usbstor changed value from 3 to 4 and back to no avail.

Maybe someone has implemented a group policy to disable usb storage.

Of course you would have to disable those settings again to reverse the effects.
