Intel RealSense Camera F200

    The first step is to install the Depth Camera Manager (DCM) program for the F200.  This installs three drivers into the Device Manager of Windows (Depth, RGB and Virtual drivers).  It also installs the firmware driver inside the camera..  Make sure you have not installed the DCM for the R200 or SR300 camera models, as these will not work with the F200.

    Please also bear in mind that the current RealSense SDK 2.0 does not support F200.  You will need to use the 2016 version of the RealSense SDK for Windows.

    The 2016 SDK and F200 DCM can be downloaded at the link below.  The SDK should not be installed until the drivers have been successfully installed with the F200 DCM.  I recommend using the '2016 R2' version of the SDK, as it contains everything in a single 1.8 GB installation file, whilst '2016 R3' is modular.

    If you need to use the camera with Linux, it is compatible with the Legacy Librealsense SDK.

    Unlike current camera models, the computer processor requirements of the F200 are very strict.  It needs an Intel Core 4th Generation CPU or newer.  Your Xiaomi Mi PRO GTX is an 8th generation Intel Core.  So it should be able to work with that computer CPU.  If the other PC does not have an Intel Core CPU, that may be a reason for installation failure on that PC.

    Do you have the three drivers mentioned listed in the Device Manager please?  Depending on your PC, they may all be in the 'Imaging Devices' section, or some may be in the 'Camera section too.  If you have not successfully used the DCM on a computer at least once, the three F200 drivers will likely be missing.

    As far as I know, the DCM was the only way to install the drivers for F200 from the start of 2015 onwards.  Before then there was no DCM and I believe the drivers were installed with the file linked to below.

    Thank you for your help, but this installer also does not see the camera. It seems to me that need some kind of special driver for windows so that he sees this camera in the USB, and therefore put everything else. I don’t know what else can be done, are there any suggestions?

    The problem with the F200 is that because it is technology that is nearly 6 years old, the more time that passes and the more Windows versions are released, the greater the chance becomes that the F200 will stop working with modern computers someday.

    I cannot think of many other options to try other than these:

    1.  Check that access to cameras and camera apps is enabled in the Windows privacy settings.

    2.  Go into the Device Manager and highlight 'Computer' in the left-hand options panel.  Right-click on it and select the 'Scan for hardware changes' menu option to see if Windows can detect your problem camera and try to download its drivers from the internet.
