Export Geotiff as a jpeg, .prj file not working

I have some big Geotiff files that I need to convert down to a small jpeg.  When I first import the .tiff and look at the layer projection, it is in the correct projection.  Without messing with anything I export the file. Under section: Metadata File Formats to Generate, I always have the first 2 checkmarked.  After it is downloaded, I open it up in CAD and it seems like I have lost all the projection data.  Any idea what could have happened?

    What CAD program are you using?  Are you certain that it is able to georeference an imported image using a world file and a PRJ file?  Is this something that has worked for you in the past, but is not working now?

    I figured out the problem.  For some reason the prj was not loading the location data, but when I did the xml.aux it seemed to work just fine, so I will just keep that checked mark.
