single device - multiple icons on desktop

Hi All I use SM3.4-3 final and have acquired a pqi 512Mb removable drive. When I insert the drive to a usb port an icon for 524M removable drive appears on the desktop - so does one for 278G, 275G, 715G and 10M, can anyone tell me how to get rid of the extra icons? - they do not appear in fstab or mtab.
