USB Disconnection

Post by LoganK107 » Tue Apr 26, 2016 4:32 pm

I am currently working on an AR Sandbox Project, and the main issue at this point is getting the Kinect Camera to stay connected. This is the error message that I receive after about one minute after launching the AR Kinect program.

Caught exception USB::Device::writeControl: Device has been disconnected

I have searched around for similar issues when it comes to a Sandbox project, but so far I have had no luck. If anyone knows what can or should be done to fix this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Can you confirm that the USB hardware really has stayed connected...the message might be an accurate report of wobbly hardware...or hardware getting bored and switching to standby. Here's an output from the dmesg command after I pulled out a USB stick...

While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named "manual".
