Jpg and Jgw tiles on wrong position

Hey again,

A friend send me some tiles that are actually google map tiles.
I know that google doesnt provide any wms service anymore - but these are tiles we still had from an older project.

I also remember, that 3 or 4 years ago I was able to just load the jpg tiles and Global Mapper automaticly (when the jgw tile has the same name) found the right position when I used Mercator and the google date.

Now its not working at all - the tiles are super small scaled and on a total wrong position out of the normal base map.

The jgw file only contains this and is named Tile_0x0.jgw


and the jpg is this (Tile_0x0.jpg):

What do I have to do, to get these tiles on the correct position?

Thanks alot :)

    Ahh, sry - I solved it.
    I just had to change Mercator (what google is using normaly I thought) to Geographic....
    Its perfectly overlapping now.
    Cheers :)
