Rather than give you a simple answer, let me refer you to this support document from Apple. As well as answering the question that you ask (see "Preventing Data Port Access" on p. 47), it has a lot of other information about securing a Mac.

This version refers to 10.5 (you don't say which version you are using) but the same principles apply to all versions of OS X. You could no doubt find a similar document specific to your version of the OS.

Blocking storage devices is the best that can be done, unless you are capable of writing your own device driver.
