I have an exisiting GPO that is restricting all local drives on a per user basis. I would like to create a new GPO that allows ONLY copying from the USB device to a network share while restricitng all other local drives on the machine. Futher more I would also like to create a another GPO for copying from a network share to a USB device ONLY while restricting access to the local drives as well.

my DC is Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition SP2 x86

No native GPO settings that I've seen to do that via GPO.  You can restict/block USB like you've noted  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/active-directory-how-to-block-usb-devices-dsforum2wiki.aspx

You may have to investigate third party products that help with advanced endpoint security.

Thanks

At my last job we used a product by Lumension  http://www.lumension.com/device-control-software/usb-security-protection.aspx

It was actually a product called Sanctuary by securewave but Lumension bought them.  Not sure if it could do what you wanted; but it was much better than built in GPOs for device control.  Search for endpoint security and you will fine more.  You will have to test any product to make sure it meets requirements.

Thanks
