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

I'm guessing that you only want to disable usb keys and not keyboards or usb printers

Open GPMC – User configuration – Policy – Administrative template – System – Removable storage Access.
Enable deny Read/Write Access.
