I will have a look later but meanwhile, if you are using XP why not download TWEAK UI by microsoft and check under 'my computer ' , ' autoplay ' and you can select to ' enable autoplay ' for removable drives although looking at it it seems to be disabled by default anyway

TweakUI is one of few good tools from MS. But remember that specific versions of TweakUI works only with specific versions of Windows OS.

e.g.-Tweak UI Version 2.10 requires Windows XP Service Pack 1 or above

hi there, if group policy wont work for you, then just try playing the services.msc

go to run-> services.msc-> then disable removable storage,
then on the group policy-> try removing the access to run and command prompt and execution of .bat file, now your secured>

hope this will help ya,
