How does the ADC work with multiple channels ?

Hello All,
   My ideal setup would be to use adc1, read channels 11,12,13 and the temp as half words then store them in a buffer at a certain memory location. 

   I think the way to do this is to enable the ADC and then hook it up to the DMA, set the dma to have a buffersize of 4, in circular mode. Then have the ADC read each channel and after finishing trigger the dma to store the next value. 

  Been trying to do that for a few days with no luck. I always end up with the OVR flag set in my ADC. The best I have been able to get is one adc channel working at a time. I'm really confused, if i get an error in ADC like "ovr" i can clear that flag and reinit, do i need to clear the error flags in the dma also and re init ? When you init a perph does it reset all of the error flags ? 

   This is what I have that does not work, sorry, so sorry for my choice of define prefix.
