Hi
I have been reading this article:

I want to create a policy that disables usb drives on my client computers. How do I import this into group policy?
Do I just save the code as .adm files and import it into group policy manager?

Yes you are correct save this file as .adm and import that into the GPO

Open the "Group Policy Management Console"
Edit the group policy where you want to apply the USB policy or Create a new GPO for USB
Computer Configuration ->  Administrative Templates and right click on that
Select "Add or Remove Templates" and select .adm file you have already selected

Now the USB disable GPO settings will be added into it

Now you will have the option of disable USB,CDROM and FDD in the GPO
