When I format a USB stick or a MP3 reader, after the completion Ubuntu always mount and open the media twice, and two identical windows appear on the screen. This was happening also on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Why? Note: my Ubuntu 12.04 is freshly installed.

Edit your question and add the output of dmesg | tail and lsusb after you connected the device. –  Braiam Nov 17 '13 at 17:33
