If you have Vista or newer, there are built in settings you can import from a Vista ADM template.  The GP path to those settings are \Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\Removable Storage Access.

If you need more details on how to import the ADM template and other information see here: http://www.petri.co.il/disable_usb_disks_with_gpo.htm
