Disabling micro SD card on USB760

Does anyone happen to know if there is a way to disable the micro SD card reader on the USB760 prior to installing, or during installation as long as the drivers know not to attempt to install once re-inserted?

We have a Windows 2003 environment with Windows XP Pro clients.  We have a group policy in place the denies the use of USB storage devices.  The current workaround is to uninstall the drivers that error when the device is inserted and then run the VZAM wizard.  We have to many users to be doing this on a daily basis, especially when the whole point is to have them being used away from the office.  I know there is a switch on the msi install to disable the virtual CD-ROM which the VZAM software comes on.  This helps with half the problem because that too comes up as USB storage.

 

Any info and help is greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

I can't answer your question, but why can't you just tell the users not to insert an SD card into the USB760.  If you can't trust them to do that, you have bigger problems than SD cards.

They don't.  If fact, most, if not all, are oblivious that it exists.  The slot is covered with an inventory tag.   However, It shows up as a USB storage device,  Just like a normal card reader, or CD-ROM, that gets assigned a drive letter.  There may not be a CD or card in them ("Please insert a disk into drive...")  but it will still come up as a drive.
