    After I take a picture, about 80% of the time two photo(identical) get saved.

    It also sends the two to skydrive. If I delete one. They both get deleted.

    Any ideas?

    Are you using the stock camera app? If you are sounds like you need to do a hard reset.

    Are you saving them to SD card? All of mine go to SD card and I haven't had that issue.

    The same problem here. I have the Portico and it still copies the photos whenever it wants to. :\ Any new information so far? (HTC 8S => I don't have much storage on the phone for pics)

    That's pretty weird. I wonder, are you guys using some photo editing app in common that might be causing the issue? Just a thought.

    I'm using a few, but not on every pic. I'd expect that to be the cause if it were only happening to pics I've edited, but it's happening to all the images.

    What about any photo effects apps? I would think any sort of camera related app might be suspect.

    I hooked up the phone to the PC last night and can confirm that there is only one copy of each photo on the phone. It sure is irritating to have all those extra thumbnails, though.

    Mine still does it once in a while, when I switch destination (phone or sd ), the problem fixes itself for a while.

    Then it comes back and I switch between the two. Problem solved. small inconvenience.

    Mine is still doing it, it seems to get worse. Inconvenient at the least.

    I also am having the same problem on my Nokia Lumia 620.

    I am majorly ticked by it. I was willing to overlook some of the little issues on the Windows Phone.
    But the fact the black update is taking its sweet time to get ready and now I take photos and 2 save to my photos section of the phone every time i take 1 picture.

    I am saving my photos to a class 10 Micro SD card.

    Started happening to me as well this week, 3-4 copies of some of the pictures taken.
    Cant figure out why it happens on certain pictures and not others.

    Are any of you using Nokia Camera Beta? Reset the camera setting and see if that helps.

    Try using a different brand of class 10 SD card. The duplicate media thing is common, Nokia phones are VERY picky about SD cards. Try a Samsung class 10 card instead, as I've never seen anyone say they've seen these or any issues with Samsung class 10 cards. Mine works perfectly.

    I had the same issue. It took a hard reset to make it go away. The good news is if you are prepared for that, it is fairly painless.
