Hi Matt,
There is a Volume Viewer setting that just shows 1 plane at first if  
the dataset is bigger than some cutoff.

In the Volume Viewer "Features" menu,
- choose "Planes" to put plane options in the dialog, then click All  
to show all planes
- to control initial display, choose "Data display options" to put  
those options in the dialog, then turn the "show plane..." option off  
or change the cutoff size


I hope this helps,
