Have you plugged the Kinect into the PC? Unless you bought the windows version you probably will have to do some hacking just to get it running on PC.

Check the Kinect Hacking article to the right here to get you started.

But to really take advantage of the Kinect as a 3D scanner you'll need to wait for the release of Kinect Fusion. But no release date has been given yet.
