    Re: USB devices for non-admins

    Even though I posted something I thought might work earlier in the thread (nearly a year ago :S) I had forgotten, however found this on the web


    Code:
    Question  -  Post 5 of 5 
    Try this. 
    If I remember this right: It should allow anyone who logs in from the keyboard (interactive user)to load a thumb drive.
    
    Run secpol.msc
    Security Settings
    Security Options 
    
    Devices: Allowed to format and eject removable media == Administrators and interactive users

    Re: USB devices for non-admins

    I've figured out what was causing the problem (for me at least) at last

    It seems that any machine that has protools related kit or drivers installed suffers from the problem. According to their site, they are aware of it and there is no fix yet.

    That sorts out the majority of my machines but leaves me with one user who's laptop is affected and he doesn't use protools.
