STM32LDiscovery multiple analog inputs

Hi all,
For a school project we need to work with the STM32LDiscovery board. We want to make a kind of plantcare system that reads the temperature and light in analog values. Now we got to the part that we can configure the ADC to convert the value from one pin but we also need to read the other sensor. And that's where we are stuck. I found something where we could use the DMA to put all read values in but it doesn't work. We use the following code for the configuration.

void ADC_Configuration(void) {
    GPIO_InitTypeDef GPIO_InitStructure;
    RCC_AHBPeriphClockCmd(RCC_AHBPeriph_GPIOA, ENABLE);
    RCC_APB2PeriphClockCmd(RCC_APB2Periph_ADC1, ENABLE);
    /* Configure PA5 as an ADC input */
    /* Pin 5 of port A is internally connected with ADC channel 5 */
    /* See page 24 of the stm32L discovery user manual */
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Pin = GPIO_Pin_5;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Mode = GPIO_Mode_AIN;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_OType = GPIO_OType_PP;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_PuPd = GPIO_PuPd_NOPULL;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Speed = GPIO_Speed_400KHz;
    GPIO_Init(GPIOA, &GPIO_InitStructure);
    ADC_InitTypeDef ADC_InitStructure;
    //ADC1 configuration
    //select continuous conversion mode
    ADC_InitStructure.ADC_ContinuousConvMode = ENABLE;
    //We will convert multiple channels
    ADC_InitStructure.ADC_ScanConvMode = ENABLE;
    //we will convert one time
    ADC_InitStructure.ADC_ContinuousConvMode = ENABLE;      //!
    //select no external triggering
    //right 12-bit data alignment in ADC data register
    ADC_InitStructure.ADC_DataAlign = ADC_DataAlign_Right;
    //2 channels conversion
    ADC_InitStructure.ADC_NbrOfConversion = 8;
    //load structure values to control and status registers
    ADC_Init(ADC1, &ADC_InitStructure);
    /* Now do the setup */
    ADC_RegularChannelConfig(ADC1, ADC_Channel_5, 2, ADC_SampleTime_48Cycles);
    ADC_Cmd(ADC1, ENABLE);
    //enable DMA for ADC
    // Wait until ADC is ready
    while (ADC_GetFlagStatus(ADC1, ADC_FLAG_ADONS) == RESET)
void DMAInit(void) {
    //enable DMA1 clock
    RCC_AHBPeriphClockCmd(RCC_AHBPeriph_DMA1, ENABLE);
    //create DMA structure
    DMA_InitTypeDef DMA_InitStructure;
    //reset DMA1 channe1 to default values;
    //channel will be used for memory to memory transfer
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_M2M = DMA_M2M_Disable;
    //setting normal mode (non circular)
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_Mode = DMA_Mode_Circular;
    //medium priority
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_Priority = DMA_Priority_High;
    //source and destination data size word=32bit
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_PeripheralDataSize = DMA_PeripheralDataSize_HalfWord;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_MemoryDataSize = DMA_MemoryDataSize_HalfWord;
    //automatic memory destination increment enable.
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_MemoryInc = DMA_MemoryInc_Enable;
    //source address increment disable
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_PeripheralInc = DMA_PeripheralInc_Disable;
    //Location assigned to peripheral register will be source
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_DIR = DMA_DIR_PeripheralSRC;
    //chunk of data to be transfered
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_BufferSize = ARRAYSIZE;
    //source and destination start addresses
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_PeripheralBaseAddr = (uint32_t) ADC1_DR;
        //adc values is: volatile uint16_t ADC_values[ARRAYSIZE];
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_MemoryBaseAddr = (uint32_t) ADC_values; 
    //send values to DMA registers
    DMA_Init(DMA1_Channel1, &DMA_InitStructure);
    // Enable DMA1 Channel Transfer Complete interrupt
    DMA_ITConfig(DMA1_Channel1, DMA_IT_TC, ENABLE);
    DMA_Cmd(DMA1_Channel1, ENABLE); //Enable the DMA1 - Channel1
    NVIC_InitTypeDef NVIC_InitStructure;
    //Enable DMA1 channel IRQ Channel */
    NVIC_InitStructure.NVIC_IRQChannel = DMA1_Channel1_IRQn;
    NVIC_InitStructure.NVIC_IRQChannelPreemptionPriority = 0;
    NVIC_InitStructure.NVIC_IRQChannelSubPriority = 0;
    NVIC_InitStructure.NVIC_IRQChannelCmd = ENABLE;
 Can anyone help us?
Thanks in advance!
