“Not enough storage space” error occurs when you try to use your Kinect sensor

You see the following error message when you try to use your Kinect sensor with your Xbox 360 console:

Not enough storage space

This means that your console needs more space to accommodate a system update for your Kinect sensor.

Solution

The Xbox 360 console software needed for Kinect requires 190 megabytes (MB) of storage space.

If you do not have 190 MB of free space, you can delete some items. Here’s how:

  1. Press the Guide button on your controller, go to Settings, and select System Settings.
  2. Select Storage or Memory.
