Yes,
1. Computer Configuration-->Policies-->Administrative Templates-->System-->Removable Storage Access
    User Configuration-->Policies-->Administrative Templates-->System-->Removable Storage Access

It specify read and write permission on all kinds of removable storage device.

2. Computer Configuration-->Policies-->Administrative Templates-->System-->Device Installation-->Device Installation Restrictions
