Kinect for Windows v2 USB Issue

このエントリ、技術オタ系です。
事情により英語と一緒。

My husband gave me Kinect Windows v2 for my birthday in the beginning of this month.
I already owned Kinect for windows original which I purchased in the beginning of this year.
Immediately after that, they announced v2. Darn. Reading their release note, I was especially excited about the thumb recognition.

Anyway, I tried to connect the birthday present, but it was not successful.

My Windows 8 kept giving message "The last USB you have connect was not recognized"
After searching, I found out only particular USB 3 port will work with Kinect for Windows v2.
This is the list of the USB3 port works with Kinect for Windows v2

I wish they made it  BOLDed statement on the box, or their sales website... I will order one of the USB 3 PCI port, and will see what will happen with my main machine.

Here is the successful setup with my Surface Pro(original ver).
This is from the Depth View on Kinect Studio.



旦那が 厄年の誕生日にKinect Windows v2 を買ってくれました。
もともと オリジナルのKinect Windowsは今年の頭に買ったばかりで
購入後すぐにMSからv2のアナウンスが出て、くっそーと思ってたものです。
v2で私が一番注目しているのは親指認識です。 あと複数人認識かな。

で、ゲーマーでもない私がKinectで何をするのかって、当然メインマシンに繋げていろいろ書くためです。

で繋げてみた。

つながりませんでした。

Windows さんに 「The last USB you have conenct is not recognized」と怒られてしまいました。

いろいろ調べた結果、Kinect for Windows v2は、特殊なUSB3ポートが必要とのこと。
USB2しかない私のマシンじゃダメ。だけど、さらにUSB3ポートでも、Kinectでは使えないものがあるらしい。
(動作確認されたUSB3のPCIカードやハブはこちら
先に言って~~~ 箱に書いといて~~~

そんなわけで今週は、繋げたところまででおしまい。
Surface Proでは動いたよ。

Asahina Path, with family (husband, black dog and white dog)

This was the training walk and car ride for our new puppy who still suffers motion sickness in the car. Due to the damage from the typhoon in September 2019, the path was filled with fallen trees. We could managed to reach Kumano shrine, but we would recommend all visitors to wear hiking shoes. The puppy enjoyed the path, though.  waiting for young brother...

3 hours: short hiking for my senior sister dog: San-No-To (三の塔、犬のため)

Summary: Hi, people. Please keep a leash on your dog. That's the way in Japan now. My long time running pal, Tomoe the Kishu dog has been depressed for a while, and has been stressed out, because of the introduction of this puppy to our household. To make her feel better, I decided to have a short hiking trip of only 3 hours solely  for her. Not with the Kishu & Kai mix boy puppy above, since he is too young, and vaccination to prepare for mountain hike has not completed yet. We arrived Yabitsu peak parking lot at 7:00 AM. I could not take photos, but on the way driving up there, the morning sunshine shed between trees is so beautiful and breathtaking.  I thought we should have come over an hour earlier, so that we can see the sunrise in the course instead. The most popular course in Tanzawa "Omote ridge line" is still covered with snow, so crampons are absolutely needed. Yabitsu Peak From the San-no-tou The public bathrooms in the beg
