Did you originally connect your Kinect to a USB 3.0 port or to a USB 2.0 port? If it was USB 3.0, please check whether the USB controller on your motherboard is a NEC 720200, or something else. If it is something else, that might be the cause of your problems. The Kinect’s power draw is well within the specifications for USB 2.0, so that should not have been the issue.

You can check by running

$ lspci | grep "USB 3.0"

from a terminal, and looking for “NEC” or “Renesas” (different name for same chip), models “uDP720200” or “uDP720200” (or similar).
