Recorder does not recognize camera and SSD

Hardware Platform: DRIVE AGX Pegasus™ Developer Kit
Software Version: DRIVE Software 10
Host Machine Version: Ubuntu 18.04
SDK Manager Version:


we are trying to record camera data for further development, but we are having issues with the recorder, because it does not recognize the camera and the SSD.

We verified that the sensor is collecting data with sample_camera_gmsl. Everything works fine here.

The SSD is connected to eSATA port 0. On Tegra B, one can see that the SSD is connected correctly, when the command lsblk is executed:

However, when we start recorder-qtgui, both the camera and the SSD are not shown. How can this issue be resolved?

We would appreciate any help regarding this issue.

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi @kn10,

Please share your command lines of sample_camera_gmsl and recorder-qtgui, and relevant files used in the commands. When it failed to detect camera and SSD, are there any messages?

Pleas also try with recorder-tui which won’t mask out messages and will give you more information about the failure.

Hi @VickNV,

thank you very much for your help. We solved the problem. There way a small and hard to notice typo in the rig file, which led to the recorder not recognizing the camera. Now, also the SSD is recognized. Everything works perfectly fine now.
