I am looking for an enterprise level solution that has flexible options on restricting removable storage devices like USB Drives and IPods. I want to be able to manage it on a 2003 server in a AD XP environment. The main feature I am looking for is the ability to allow USB drives registered to the software onto the computers but block any unauthorized USB based storage device from being used. Any recommendations would help.

I would recommend checking out DeviceLock.
www.devicelock.com
 It inetgrates with AD Group Poliicy and also has auditing functions for reporting.

I did some checking on it and it looks like a good solution. I would like to know if anyone else has used something else and would recommend it as well. I like to know I have options.

I just wanted to note after doing some research that GFI has a solution called end point security and after trying both I found it to be a better solution for larger networks. But Devicelock is a good easy to use solution as well.
