  11. Does this work for the 360 kinect aswell??? PLEASE ANSWER 🙁

  12. My dad says the wires would touch because the 10 is so close to the others is my dad wrong or right?

  13. The pc adapter is only $22 on amazon so I’ll just do that because the 2amp power adapter is about $10 anyway

  14. do you also need to remove the power from the port so you don't fry any 5V plugs with 12V or doesn't it matter

  15. … This is stupid… Why didnt you just cut and splice the cable into USB/12v?

  16. It worked perfectly thanks to you I didn't have to wait 15 days for the adapter to get to my country

  17. Holy fuck, the amount of inexperienced people connecting their kinect to ac power or soldering shit wrong so that they blow up their computers is off the wall.

  18. Ummm I think I’m just gonna get leg trackers and the vive

  19. Nice Video!
    Is this also working with the old kinect and a Adapter?

  20. Daley Tech Please help, I followed all steps and connected my 12v 1600mah power supply to the kinect pin 10 and ground and I plug the kinect in my computer usb 3.0 port and a message pops up saying that the device is malfunctioned and makes the windows disconnect and connect usb sound every second. I installed all drivers for the kinect I dont know what's wrong.
    Please Help

  21. I got the adapter off Ebay…Hehe, that worked fine! Lol good luck guys

  22. I made this mod and at first it would not power up. I pulled it apart to see where the power had gone and found that the internal fuse was blown under the main board. The fuse is a Set X1 and looks like this (see here The fuse is connected in the middle of the board seen in this photo (see here – it is in the middle of the green board that has the USB connector, connected to the white plug in the middle of this board). I think I may have blown this fuse by mistakenly using a USB2 cable instead of a USB3 cable. My fix was to short out this fuse, but it is not my recommendation to others.

  23. What polarity is pin 10 positive or negative?

  24. This worked for me, installed the Kinect V2 SDK and then updated the driver as per this post ( and now I have a hackerman 3D scanner, thanks for the tutorial and for saving me from getting scalped $300 on eBay for the adapter!

  25. So I just followed this and it when I connected it to my pc it shut down instantly. I'm worried I might have mis soldered something and fried my system

  26. Can this work with macOS?

  27. Daley Tech, what would say works better for body tracking: 4x ps eyes or Kinect V2?

  28. Does this work for the original xbox 360 Kinect?

  29. I have a Problem
    a have a 12v 8 a power supply and all works but when i connect my kinect with my pc on usb 3.0 the usb will do anything but don´t work with the kinect.
    I think that the 12v from the power supply comes back via usb cable to the pc and the controller turn the port off and on permantly because it measured that there are more than 5v
    what can i do that this doesn´t come?
    i need to make the 12v form the pc do not come to the pc

    by the way i have the intel usb controller and it doesn´t matter where i plug it in

  30. Will this work with a 360 Kinect?

  31. Are you able to use the ir mode? I'm thing of using this as an indore security camera.

  32. do u have one for Xbox 360

  33. Every time I plug it in to the computer it says device not recognized multiple times. When I go to devices it will appear and disappear multiple times like it’s being plugged in and out. Anyone else had this problem?

  34. Did this mod late last year, connected it to my Win7 PC to verify it worked and haven't used it since. yesterday i plugged it into the PC but the PC didn't recognise it. it is plugged into a USB3 socket and I confirmed it has a 12V supply. can anyone offer any help?

  35. I tried this and for some reason it connects then disconnects on my pc, on and off so I have to unplug it. My suspicion is its not the right AC adaptor. Any thoughts?

  36. I can't remove the security screws because they have like a nipple in the middle that prevents the screwdriver from sliding in..

  37. oh shit my ac adaptors wires dont have color coating.. its just copper… what do i do??

  38. Thanks it works 😉

  39. Hi,
    Does anyone know what the thin white/black signal wire is for?
    If this mod is simple as wiring a negative and positive wires up inside the sensor… then surely using the original Kinect cable and splicing in will be easier?
    All wires correspond to a standard USB 3 cable… all but the kinect thin signal wire…
    Can this be done and just leave this signal wire disconnected? Surely this should work.

  40. GOOOD VIDEO! Direct to the information and not to much bla bla bla. GOOD GOOD GOOD! thanks a lot. Greetings
