Default Duplicate photos?

I have an HTC Amaze. I've just imported all my photos from my phone onto my computer and have come across this insanely perplexing problem....

For the majority of all my photos, there are multiples and as many as 5 times of the same photo on my computer.

The photos that I have taken WITH the phone itself are mostly the ones affected but when reviewing them in Windows Live Photo Gallery, I noticed that only 1 shows up, for example as: "IMAG0033 file and the rest that are really tiny are identified like this for ex: "10-44786221-1266319-960 - Windows Live Photo Gallery"...all the same picture.

I know that there is a folder in Gallery (on phone) that shows ALL photos, but then somehow there are other folders, for which I didn't create! I just take the pictures, download some from emails, but I've never created any other folder.

How do I stop the duplication of these photos? When I imported these pictures from my phone, it said there was 1800 and some pictures and its safe to say 60% of them are duplicates or more!

HELP!

that is perplexing...so this is when you search pictures on the phone from the PC or try to move pictures to your PC? I just tried this and just see one set of pictures.

You should only have our camera photos in /mnt/sdcard/ext_sd/DCIM/100MEDIA ... downloaded photos will appear in a couple of places.

Best I can guess, you are downloading copies of your own photos, and they're being copied from folders like /mnt/sdcard/Download, etc.

I would mount your phone as hard drive and find the folders you want to copy. Don't let some Windows application do it for you.

BTW, the "really tiny" ones are clearly thumbnails created by your on-phone gallery app(s). Again, the Windows photo app is copying over way too much. Do it manually, instead. My two cents....

If you have root then use root browser lite(free) if your not rooted then us androzip file manager or astro file manager/browser.
start the app, scroll to sdcard,then scroll to DCIM, there is the thumbnail folder.
us this same method on the sdcard2 folder.
Then just go through and delete what thumbnails you don't want.
