hi i just bought a new xbox kinect and apparently, my VM is unable to detect the kinect motor driver but is able to instead the camera and audio instead. this cause me to be unable to use libfreenect. can anyone help me? i searched and most people are able to detect the motor but unable to detect the camera and audio. mine is the opposite. thanks! also when i run

openni and the command rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/rgb/image_color

to display the camera data, i get no data with the screen blank. anyone entcounters this problem too?

edit i am using ros fuerte with ubuntu precise 12.04

yes i tested freenect stack with my old kinect and it works apparently. openni does not work on my old kinect too so i dont think its a kinect problem

I'm curious why you're using Fuerte, there might be some deprecated packages that are causing problems. Also what does the lsusb (type in command terminal) output say?
