another way..
you can disable USB from the registry.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\UsbStor
Value: "Start", change to "4" (Hexadecimal).
Add this to your GPO

You can add any registry key you want to the GPO and have it applied to any
OU from: Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > 
Security Settings > Registry. Right click and choose Add key. Add the key
 and refresh the policy.
