[Paraview] How to do volume rendering of image data?

Attached is a small sample vtk file that illustrates the problem. It is
a rough representation of a human molar composed originally of 13 jpeg
image slices, processed into a raw file with ImageJ, then saved to vtk
When I open the file in Paraview 3.2 I see a black block when I choose
volume representation. The information tab describes it as a uniform
rectilinear grid and shows number of points and cells, just like the
info tab of the sample wavelet object described by Utkarsh does.
When I open it in Paraview 3.8, the statistics entries in the
information tab are blank, and when I try to choose volume
representation I get the error mentioned below.
Utkarsh, I'm not sure what you mean by "single component point scalars."
Does this mean that color images with three scalar RGB values per grid
node can't be volume rendered? If so, does that mean that what I'm
currently attempting is impossible in Paraview? Or is there a way to
hack RGB color information into single-value scalars and render a color
