Microsoft wont allow xbox360 accessories to be compatible with its old xbox model. Microsoft makes money this way. so when you buy the new stuff, most of the time you always have to buy the other stuff that is just as new. the xbox360 OS (Operating System) is different from the old Xbox OS. Thats also why Xbox360 cant play the original Xbox games. This way Microsoft can keep heading in the direction they are aiming for. Its like they say, "you cant teach an old dog new tricks."

Kinectic requires update


You must update. Xbox requires it for proper functioning in the xbox kinect system. This enables the xbox to recognize your kinect camera and adds more features. So you not updating it wont let it work. Its the way Xbox companies makes their money.

My kinect does not turn on the light stays on red


Try unplugging the kinect and then the x-box power for a few minutes. Then plug the kinect in before reconnecting the power. If that doesn't work you may have to contact microsoft support, there should be a phone # on the package.

I can not play kinect with my xbox 360. i can do everthing except acess playing sonic etc. please help.


Do you have the Kinect hardware that you need to play kinect games. It looks like this..
vinayak_nair_21.jpg
If you have bought your Xbox 360 before kinect came out you will have to buy this hardware. If you do have this and you have the older XBOX did you connect the power adapter to the kinect that is provided in the box as only the newer XBOX S does not need a power adapter for it. If all is present then look at the bottom right corner for a video display which will show you what the kinect is looking at. If present then wave your hand and a hand icon will be presented on screen at the bottom, complete the wave and you will get a hand cursor. You can then use the cursor to select kinect hub and then select play game from it. Hope the kinect hardware is placed at an appropriate height to allow for it to see properly and has enough swivel space too as the camera automatically tilts up and down to keep the player in the center.
Hope this helps..

How to connect the xbox kincet


If your Kinect only has one cord coming off of it, that should go into the back of your Xbox where there is a color coded slot (orange).

Trying to connect the kinect


First off make sure you have at least 190 mb of space in your HDD before trying to set up your kinect.
Setup:
Step 1: Make sure your xbox 360 is properly connected to the television with the AV cables and power cable to an outlet.
Step 2: Place sensor under or on top of your television on a stable flat surface.
Step 3: Depending on your xbox the sensor has two different connections. If you have the new slim xbox 360 then you do not need the extra add on connection you simply connect it to a special port for it on the back of your xbox 360 slim. If it is a older version xbox then you will need the extra power adaptor since it will not work without it.(Cable with power connection)
Step 4; (ONLY FOR OLDER VERSION XBOX 360): If you have a wireless connection adaptor unplug it from the usb port in the back of the xbox 360 and connect the kinect sensor's power adaptor into the port you took the wireless connection adaptor off of. There should be a special cable that will act as an extension for the wireless connection adaptor you unplugged this is so you can connect it directly to the usb ports in the front of the xbox 360. Then plug the end with the power outlet connector of the kinect sensor power adaptor into the wall socket.
Step 5: Turn on the xbox 360 and the kinect sensor should move up and down to adjust.
Step 6: Put kinect game in and it will guide you through kinect settings and your on your way to start playing! Have Fun!

I.m trying to play a kinect game and the kinect tuner gives me this error code (coooooc2)


Hi Chris

Kindly specify if you have a "slim" version of the Xbox 360 or the older one?

The error code you have specified here seems to triggering due to a hardware issue of your Kinect device.

If you have a older version of Xbox 360 which requires you to use a separate power supply for Xbox 360 try these steps

  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Make sure the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet.
  3. Make sure the USB connector is plugged into the back of the console.
  4. The light located near the middle of the split cable should be green.
Post that re-calibrate your Kinect tuner and check if it's working else you may have to get your Kinect device replaced from Microsoft

Will Kinect work with existing games?


This is another area that has sparked a lot of confusion, mostly due to the fact that a Kinect Burnout Paradise video has been released, and so people began assuming that since Burnout Paradise was a previously released game, that other previously released games will be available for Kinect use. That is not the case, as Kudo Tsunoda, the Creative Director for Kinect has said, that existing games require a large rewrite of their code, which will not make it practical for them to release update packs to work with Kinect. But, definitely expect some sequels to games, as well as annual sports games to come out utilizing Kinect controls.
