Angry recessed lighting

I'm trying to replace two existing lights (running off of one switch) with two recessed lights. The problem is; 1 of the lines is 3 wire(red, white, black), the other two are 2 wire (white, black). The light is also two wire.
I have tried to wire this a variety of different ways without sucess. any thoughts??

How was it wired before? What other wires are at the light with red/blk/wht.? What wires are connected to the switch?

Look at the wiring in your switch box. You need to describe the wiring in that box as well as the wiring in each of the fixture boxes and then we can help you out. The more specific you are with your description the easier it will be for us to help.
