I am trying to insert Geo-referenced TIF files into Map 2013 but the associated World files are not being found/recognised even though they are in the same directory as the image. I have tried both TAB and TFW using MAPIINSERTand Data Connect.
Going back to Map 2012, which we still have in the office, the World files are found and correlated correctly with both of the above World file types and Map commands.
I can do what I need to do in 2012 for the moment but has anyone else had this problem?

Solved! by andreas.kluser. See the answer in context.
Thanks for the tip, it's a nice tool and has provided a work round for the problem I'm having although I'd still like to know why Map was not finding the world files.
As noted in my first post these are both found and used by Map 2012 to locate the raster file correctly but not by Map 2013 - hopefully thwe layout of the contents isn't lost in the formatting of the post
Contents of TFW file are
And contents of TAB file are
(335000,130000) (0,5000) Label "Pt 1",
(340000,130000) (5000,5000) Label "Pt 2",
(340000,135000) (5000,0) Label "Pt 3",
(335000,135000) (0,0) Label "Pt 4"
CoordSys Earth Projection 8, 79, "m", -2, 49, 0.9996012717, 400000, -100000
Are you REALLY sure that .TFW file name is ST33SE like its own TIFF ?
If so, erase or move the original .TFW anywhere, then with GeoTiffExaminer recreate it from the Geotiff already existing, and try again in Map2013.
I am having the same problem with Civil3D 2013.
If i change the coordinate system of my drawing to no projection no datum, it will come in just fine. However if i do not it will come in the wrong place.
I have an geotiff that is in Alaska Stateplane zone 7 (NAD83) and my current drawing is a custom coordinate system with defined values in Autocadd.
I normally in the past would just edit the world file to make the geotiff come in my drawing in the correct place. However when I do this it will not work, put it in wrong place. I notice on the insertion that the correlation data is different than my world file.
If i change my coordinate system to no datum no projection it will come in to the correct place and the correlation data on the import is same as my world file.
So looks like to me that it is trying to convert on the import.
So what should i do, is there a setting I need to change in Civil 3d / Map?
I opened my image in a photo viewer then saved as a regular tiff and now Civil3d 2013 will now read the world file and bring it in correct location.
So seems to me that Civil3d 2013 is trying to read my image info instead of world file info? Which is not the order it is supposed to. What do you guys think?
