    Hi,

    you won't be able to selectively disable removable media.
    Thanks & Regards

      If it is possible, and your client PCs support CSEs, you could look at Group Policy preferences.

      In the past, we have allocated USB memory sticks to employees and/or made them aware of the USB memory stick that will run on computers. This way, you can install the appropriate drivers and then block USB sticks.

      You can make use of security groups as well with the blocking.

        I would side with those who have already replied in assuming that by "USB data card" you mean USB thumb drives etc, please can you confirm though that this is the case and that you don't mean devices such as 3G dongles, which are also sometimes referred to loosely as "data cards".

            you can selectively block a specific data card or a USB drive using {MOD EDIT} 3rd party software.

            Enjoy!

              Basically, 2003 can't do it without 3rd party software.
