My company is testing Bitlocker on USB drives.  But there is a snag when you want to connect a iPod or Blackberry device.  It wants to encrypt the device just like a thumbdrive.  Is there a way around this?  Maybe in group policy?

doubt if that would be the case, since the bb and iphone etc are taken as external drives or removable drives by the system and the group policy for bit locker has option to take it out completely for removable drives and not specific to what typeof removable drive it is.

this might be what you would want to try and see how you could selectively do the encryption.
