I am trying to connect Kinect on USB 1.0 port, but it is not working. Is it possible to use Kinect on USB 1.0.

It's quite possible that the kinect doesn't work on USB 1.0, as I know there are often issues with USB 3.0. Sometimes the issue is that the USB port does not supply power.

At full bandwidth, USB 1 can do 12Mbps. There is no way a kinect can run with this limited bandwidth.
