Permissions to install USB devices?

By cbirdsong22 ·
My users are "Power Users", and lack the ability to install USB devices (namely digital cameras).

What permissions/settings must I modify to give them the ability to install these devices?

My only current fix is to make them admins.

Thx in advance!

install device drivers

have you tried giving them the right to load and unload device drivers in group policy? Don't know if this will work but worth a shot.

Set "Full Control" on usbstor.inf for "Power Users"

by Link999 In reply to install device drivers

I haven't tried this, but I've heard that it works. Alter permissions on %*WINSYS%\inf\usbstor.inf with full control for the group that you want to have permission to "install" usb devices.
Plus make sure the Power User group has the "Load and unload device driver" security rights.
