Here is some script that will retrieve the list of USB storage devices. Just GUICtrlSetData to set the list to your dropdown.

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
Local $usbList = ""
$aRemDrives = DriveGetDrive("ALL")
If IsArray($aRemDrives) Then
    For $i = 1 To $aRemDrives[0]
        $driveType = DriveGetType($aRemDrives[$i], 3)
        If StringInStr($driveType, "USB") Then $usbList &= $aRemDrives[$i] & "|"
    Next
EndIf
If $usbList <> "" Then
    While StringRight($usbList, 1) = "|"
        $usbList = StringTrimRight($usbList, 1)
    WEnd
    MsgBox(0, "USB List" , $usbList)
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Warning", "No USB Drives found.")
EndIf

Note that using DriveGetDrive("ALL") is important as not all USB devices show up as removable.
