Stop Phones Connecting
Don't think this is possible but you guys can probably tell me.
Is there a way to stop students connecting phones via usb to the computers? We've had a problem with students copying pictures from there phones onto the network. Don't want to diable usb as we need them for memory sticks.
when it mounts the phones memory card or memory via usb does it mount it as a memory card or what exactly ?
The kids are only using their phones as a storage device eally... even if you could prevent their use, what would stop them bringing in the images on a USB drive?

or there is this paid software - might be on the expensive side unless you can get an educational discount - might be worth contacting them :

USB CopyNotify! - Stop Data Theft, Block USB Ports & Control USB Access
This TakeWare Gatekeeper will block all USB apart from the ones you've authorised.
Vista / 2008 have Group Policy settings that allow you to modify removable drives - such as read only or deny access, etc..
