comment GeoTIFF world file ignored by QGIS?
In addition to the points made below (gdal ignoring world files if some geo tags are present, gdal/esri disagreeing on pixel edge/centre references), there's no naming standard for world files. Check you're using one that gdal knows about, and avoid using them in the future if you can. I've seen tifw, tiffw, tfw, wld, tiff.wld, …
