I've had some experience with this kind of problem. I've written a high-speed CIT-group4-to-TIFF-group4 converter which actually just changes headers, not data. In writing the headers and trying to get them right I found out that many programs had trouble reading the file when the data referenced by the tags in the Image File Directory (this is almost all data excluding the actual image data) was AFTER the IFD. I've solved my own problems by simply moving the IFD to the back of the IFD data blocks.
