GPO policy won't allow users to connect usb drives

I've created a ton of new GPO's for a new domain and have done nothing to specifically block usb devices or drives

the only GPO that I set even close to is hide C drive (specifically) and prevent C drive access

when I plug a usb drive in, it recognizes and installs the drive including showing it in my computer, but will not allow access.

TIA
