Driveworks 5.4 video recorder or sample_camera app fails with error to read eeprom data from sensor


I have trying to use Driveworks 5.4 sample_camera app on Drive ORIN platform. My camera module does not have any eeprom and it streams well with nvsipl_camera application. But when I try to run it with sample_camera app of Driveworks SDK then I see the following error

what(): DW_INTERNAL_ERROR: CameraMaster: Failed to Start master! SIPLStatus: 9 SIPL errror code = 9

Is it required to have EEPROM for driveworks application to work? OR can we skip reading EEPROM via any command option in rig file passing with Driveworks application?

Please note that in the driver query files I dont have any node for EEPROM and it works well with nvsipl_camera application.


Dear @mayur.verma,
The DW samples are broken and we are working on a fix now. We recommend to not to use until next release. We will update you on release soon.
