Low voltage wiring

I recently installed a 2 channel 500watt transformer for my lighted paver. When I connected all the wires instead of 2 lights on the pavers lighting only 1 light is being lite? I used 12 gauge low voltage wire, I used the wire with the lines running down then( the ribbed wire) as black. Is there a cerian way to wire these pavers. http://www.beautibrick.com/paverlights.htm 6x9 ones second to last ones.

The description says there are 4 connectors. Did you hook up both lights using all 4 connectors?

Yes I used all 4 connecters. I connected the white wires coming from each bulb together and then the black wires coming from each bulb together (2 connectors so far) Next I connected the black wire which has the 2 wires already crimped to the ribbed side of the 12 volt wire and then the same with the white wire except thet i crimped it to the other side off the 12 volt wire( 2 more connectors. Total 4 connectors. Do you think each white wire, & each black wire has to be hooked up directly to the 12 volt wire?

connect all black to black and all white to white.
