No, the USB can't be used for Recording nor Playing. It can only be used to Backup your Memory CARD or to RESTORE the memory CARD info backed up previously.

For the BR-864 normal operation you need a working Memory CARD and the respective internal reader.

Are you sure it's not a faulty card? did you try with other CF Cards ?

I assume you mean that one or more of the pins are bent or broken. If pins are bent, you can try to straighten them. But be careful as the metal may be fatigued and further bending could snap the pin off. If you have broken pins, then you should take the BR-864 to a reputable electronics repair shop and have the CompactFlash connector replaced.

Sometimes dust and other foreign matter can get into the card slot, preventing the pins from making contact. Try blowing into the slot and/or tipping the BR-864 on its side and tapping the case to dislodge any foreign matter from the slot.
