I've had trouble installing the correct drivers for an XBOX Kinect 1414. Are the "Kinect for Windows" drivers, runtime, SDK etc. for the kinect Just for Windows or are they also for the Kinect for XBOX? I've had trouble when installing them, I get the message either that the AC/DC power adapter isn't plugged in (even though it is) or that some of the features aren't ready on the Kinect. It looks like the drivers are installed but I don't know why it isn't working.

I recall seeing similar errors with Kinect for Windows. I think restarting the computer cleared that up but I also saw this error with a Kinect that had gone bad. Hopefully, the restart is all you need. Also, try switching to a different USB port or controller.

Kinect for XBox should be compatible with Kinect SDK 1.8. I normally use three Kinect for Windows but I recently had to use an XBox Kinect as a temporary replacement, and it worked fine with Mocap Studio 3.

This is on Windows 7--are you on 7 or 8? I'm not sure if Kinect for XBox works with Windows 8 or if it requires different drivers.

Hope this helps.

I had similar problems with a not compatible usb extension cord. If you use one, try connecting the kinect direct to the usb port. Also my USB 3.0 port cause problems with the kinect, on the USB 2.0 port all works fine :)
