I'm going to help you, but first need you to tell me what type and model of Taranis you have?
X9D, X9D+, X9d + Special Edition?
You should also know that I don't use your language but a translator, but I think we'll get it done, don't throw away the radio.

My radio is Taranis X9D.
I used companion, last version 2.3.15, with zadig driver installed.
What is the difference between .bin file and .dfu?
If I try to update firmware with opentx-2.0.5 .dfu, I risk to fridge the radio?
I tempted to update firmware through sd card, but it didn't run, maybe before 2 version there is not bootloader.
Then I used companion in power off mode, but I mistaked to chose right firmware version.
Thaks for rescue.

Sorry for the delay due to work reasons.
Don't worry the radio is always recoverable, it has a "bootloader" built into the CPU, it can't be damaged.
Delete and Reinstall Zadig, on your computer.
Taranis off, connect USB to computer.
Use Zadig as administrator. Use the list all devices option.
Select "STM32 BOOTLOADER" or "STM Device in DFU Mode".
DO NOT SELECT ANY OTHER OPTION.
If you see "Frsky Taranis Bootloader" you have connected with the radio on, instead of off.
And if you overwrite with Zadig you will make the SD and the models and settings inaccessible.
Click "Install Driver", if there is a STM32 driver it will be reinstalled.
Hit install when the confirmation box appears.
Once installed, it will show driver installed successf
Once the bootloader is installed the radio should be visible in windows, when you connect it with the USB.
Then you must install the firmware, taking into account that the version of Opentx and Companion must be the same.

On the Frsky page look for your radio in discontinued.
Then Install the latest firmware available for your radio x9dp-v2.2.2 from 2018-05-28 and if you want or not you have installed before the internal module firmware 2020-03-24 ACCST D16 v2.1.0

Use Companion to install the firmware on the radio. Don't touch anything on the Taranis drive, just work with the Sd card.
Remember the radio is always salvageable.

Sorry, I return to this project after months. I mustn't spend time for this before.
For the installation of driver there are no problem, it seems OK: SMT32 in USB device instead of USB controller.
But I don't view taranis on file system windows.
Another question, my taranis x9d have not bootloader, and I don't take taranis in bootloader mode. If I understand right for view taranis on file system before it is necessary taranis in bootloader mode and then connect taranis through USB at pc. It is correct?
I try to flash firmware 2.2.2, version of taranis web site, with companion 2.2.2, and put same firmware on dir Firmware of SD card, but taranis screen light for a second and then nothing.
Thank you for help.
