DMA won't get enabled

Hello stmGuys. I'm having a problem configuring my DMA. I've tried everything I can imagine and it still doesn't work. I want the DMA to transfer data from a memory array to the GPIOD->ODR register. Here is my DMA_Init function:
void Init_DMA()
    RCC_AHB1PeriphClockCmd(RCC_AHB1Periph_DMA1, ENABLE);
    RCC_APB1PeriphClockCmd(RCC_APB1Periph_TIM2, ENABLE);
    DMA_InitTypeDef         DMA_InitStructure;
    TIM_TimeBaseInitTypeDef timerInitStructure;
    timerInitStructure.TIM_Prescaler = 0;
    timerInitStructure.TIM_CounterMode = TIM_CounterMode_Down;
    timerInitStructure.TIM_Period = 1;
    timerInitStructure.TIM_ClockDivision = TIM_CKD_DIV1;
    timerInitStructure.TIM_RepetitionCounter = 0;
    TIM_TimeBaseInit(TIM2, &timerInitStructure);
    TIM_DMACmd(TIM2,TIM_DMA_Update,ENABLE);//This is connected to DMA1_Stream1 Channel_3
    TIM_Cmd(TIM2, ENABLE);
    while(DMA_GetCmdStatus(DMA1_Stream1));//Wait until its ready to be configured
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_Channel = DMA_Channel_3;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_PeripheralBaseAddr = (uint32_t) &GPIOD->ODR;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_Memory0BaseAddr = (uint32_t) &v_memory[0];
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_DIR = DMA_DIR_MemoryToPeripheral ;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_BufferSize = 160;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_PeripheralInc = DMA_PeripheralInc_Disable;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_MemoryInc = DMA_MemoryInc_Enable;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_PeripheralDataSize = DMA_PeripheralDataSize_Byte; //Tried all possible combinations sizes
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_MemoryDataSize = DMA_MemoryDataSize_Byte;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_Mode = DMA_Mode_Normal;
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_Priority = DMA_Priority_VeryHigh;             //
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_FIFOMode = DMA_FIFOMode_Disable;              //
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_FIFOThreshold = DMA_FIFOStatus_HalfFull;      //
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_MemoryBurst = DMA_MemoryBurst_Single;         //I've tried all possible combinations with these params
    DMA_InitStructure.DMA_PeripheralBurst = DMA_PeripheralBurst_Single ;//
    DMA_Init(DMA1_Stream1, &DMA_InitStructure);
    DMA_Cmd(DMA1_Stream1, ENABLE);

v_memory is defined as: uint8_t v_memory[160];
The GPIOD is well configured as output.
In my main loop I'm continously checking DMA1_Stream1 status and I've discovered its always disabled. Even if I enable it just before checking. If I don't configure Timer2 as the DMA Request then the DMA keeps enabled but it doesent transfer any data... I want this transfer to be done every time the timer reaches 0 value. I'm refilling this timer in other function so it's not the problem. I really can't see what I'm missing. Anyone there able to bring light here?

Thanks in advance.
