I got the same problem with Mathematica 6.0.1 under XP SP2, although
it only concerns 3d plots; only an empty box when I try to render the
graphics. I found a way to avoid this problem: just add PlotStyle ->
Directive[Opacity[0.x]] to your Plot3D options and it should be fine.
Set x to 99 to avoid losing quality, as soon as you put a value of 1,
same empty box. However, this fix is not that helpful as Opacity is
supposed to slow down the rendering. But this should do until you find
something else.
