How to block Active Directory users from copying, exporting to external media?

Hello Experts! I need to block users in a specific Active Directory Container (SBS 2003) from Domain desktops to External Media (Flash Drives, CD's/DVD's). I know disabling right click is straighforward enough. Had a few ideas. One, block all drives except sanctioned mapped drives. Need to know if that is possible or if there is a simpler solution.

You can use a GP to disable the drives except for C: from showing up in my computer or being usable. If you want to disable all USB disk systems this is a great artical on how...

Includes the code for creating the custom adm file that can be uploaded to the GP... this will take care of both.
