Default tophat on paired files

Dear all,

I am using tophat and ran into a simple error. When I put in more pairs in the command, it failed complaining not being able to open the files.

Any comment is appreciated...

What was said in the documentation:
******************
<reads1_1[,...,readsN_1]> A comma-separated list of files containing reads in FASTQ or FASTA format. When running TopHat with paired-end reads, this should be the *_1 ("left") set of files.
<[reads1_2,...readsN_2]> A comma-separated list of files containing reads in FASTA or FASTA format. Only used when running TopHat with paired end reads, and contains the *_2 ("right") set of files. The *_2 files *MUST* appear in the same order as the *_1 files.
******************

My command:

********************************************
tophat --solexa1.3-quals -m 1 -r 130 -G /datastore/nextgenproc/projects/exonDB/custom_exonDB.04152009.hg18.exon.gff /home/jyli/Bowtie/indexes/hg18_genome

****************************************

Error here...
