You'll probably want some custom udev rules, you can differentiate the printer from the pen drives by the block driver. Have a go at it and let us know if you need help.

@Kalidos, this sounds like it would be a really cool project. Like if someone tries to plug in a device, a UI password prompt would appear. If you type in the right password, you then would have permission to access this feature; plugining in and using devices and the CD tray. Your a genius!
