Thanks for the reply.  You're right about my problem.  I'm still on .23 and
am using storage groups.  The ISO's are unencrypted, so when I read the part
of the wiki that you directed me to, I didn't know why I was having problems
(doesn't say anything about having to be on .24).  I guess I now have a good
reason to upgrade if it'll save me from getting the mouse out to open VLC
whenever I want to watch a movie.

I actually didn't write my post based on the log, but because when I tried
to play a .iso, the DVD in my DVD player started playing.  Anyway, it's not
important now.  Thanks for the help.
