  • No, it's not possible.

    Kinect v2 needs USB3.0, raspberry pi (any model) has only USB 2 ports.

  • it doesnt matters as i have tested kinect by connecting to my usb 2.0 port of pc and it works fine but it says a warning usb is old and data will not be perfect but it works my main question is windows iot core supports kinect or not ?

  • Are you sure that was an USB 2 port/controller? Because the Kinect v2 is not supposed to work on USB 2, and I've never heard of anyone getting it to work on USB 2. And even with USB 3, it's notoriously difficult to get it to work reliably. So it's really unlikely that it worked for you with USB 2.
