The Kinect diagram shows a total of nine strands I attach a diagram with this message. The Xbox Kinect, when you purchase it on its own, will come with a USB converter cable that turns the special Kinect cable into a USB connection. The actually pairing should be:

Shield-Black=Shield; Gnd

Yellow-Black=12v

Red-Red=5v

White-White= Data-

Green-Green= Data+

USB generally will have four 'signal wires'. Two pairs - each sends data one direction. i.e. Transmit, and Receive.

They can be thought of this way:

TX +

TX -

RX +

RX -

Each is usually shielded. These are very small things. You have to get them all connected right or it won't work.

There's also a ground which is the shield and may have its own inernal wire as well, and a +5V (5 volts DC) line. These also must be repaired.

Unless you have experience soldering and handling very fine wire, it might be as well to find an electronics tech perhaps at a TV shop and ask that person if they can splice or repiar the cable.
