2nd Update:

I found that the problem was a combination of probably the wrong usb port on the computer and the bigger problem was either not enough current from the 12V power supply or a bad cable. I tried all of the usb ports on the computer and found one that connected to the camera. Then I noticed that if I moved the cable that it would disconnect and then if I moved it again it might connect. The Kinect to usb adapter I was using had a 1 amp power supply. Some of my research into my problems revealed that some people have had problems with only 1 amp power supplies. So, I built my own adapter using a 3.5 amp 12Vdc power supply. It’s now working and there doesn’t seem to be any sensitivity to cable movement. I think the problem is solved but I’m not real sure of what solved it.
