Duplicate items on desktop

Somtimes I get two of the same file on my desktop whenever I save a file there. For example, if I drag some pictures from my memory card to my desktop I end up with two of every picture. If I move or delete one of the copies the other usually goes with it. This same thing also happens with folders. Any ideas? I repair permissions regurarly and it does not seem to help. Thanks.

do the copies disappear after you remove the external device?
