Sandisk has admitted that it is struggling to meet demand for 512MB and 1GB memory sticks as PSP users store memory hungry files such as movies and music.

The demand for high capacity cards has caught Sandisk by surprise. They were unsure how popular movies would be on the PSP, but the massive interest in this side of the portable console's armory is now clear to see.

According to cNet, Christina Day, product marketing manager for SanDisk said, "It's been hard to keep up with the demand. It's a good problem to have, but we don't want to have people frustrated."

"We're getting a lot of questions about 2GB Memory Sticks," she added. The 2GB cards are expected to hit shops in the next 2-3 months.

I don't think Sandisk is the only one in short supply. I ordered a Sony 1 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo one on March 25th and am yet to get a shipping confirmation email.
