ADC sampling and storing on SD

I need to be able to store ADC sample on a SD card. the sample rate is 200KHz.
Since the buffer size register is limited to a maximum value of 0xffff I decided to use the DMA in a dual buffer mode and ADC in Continuous Conversion Mode.
I want to supply the DMA with two addresses and this way to have a whole buffer of 100000 samples. Then I want to write this whole buffer to the SD card each 500ms.

The problem is that after a few seconds the DMA stops working and the data never changes. I also tried to use an interrupt (for debug only) but the same happened here, after a few seconds I stopped getting DMA interrupts. I'm sure I'm missing something but I just can't find the problem

BTW, this thread is a follow up to this older thread:

Here is the code I used:
