Kinect microphone not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been working on kinect for like 2 moths.I just upgraded from sdk 1.5 to sdk 1.6. Everything is working fine except for the microphone.When ever I launch an audio application from tool-kit it says my kinect audio not found.I Have installed the same SDK on another pc and everything is working fine on it.I have kinect for xbox. The audio drivers are installed correctly because its showing "Kinect for windows audio array control" in device manager under Microsoft kinect and also "Kinect USB Audio" under sound,video and game controllers. I had removed all previous versions of sdk and drivers before installing the new one.Please help me figure this out.

  • Couple of things to check here for troubleshooting,

    did you see any exclamation (warning) symbol with the Audio driver loaded in Device manager ?

    If yes, the audio driver is not loaded properly. 

    Also,  from Control Panel > Sounds > Check if you are able to view "Kinect Microphone Array" as an Audio device ?  If the driver loaded properly, you will able to view the same over there.

    Make sure your sensor getting enough bandwidth from USB hub (don't  plug other devices which consumes bandwidth such webcam.. ) .

    Also, you can try with reinstalling the SDK once.

    Check this out, hope this helps !
