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...
we use device lock

Works well

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