MAME OS X Roms not working

I downloaded MAME OS X and then Donkey Kong US Set 1. The download expanded into a folder and so I zipped it and placed the zip file in a folder on my desktop called MAME ROMS. I then opened the preferences for MAME OS X and chose the MAME ROMS folder as the location for the ROM Directory. I select Donkey Kong in the list of games and it appears to open, but the screen just stays black. When I click on the title bar for MAME OS X, I get a sound from Donkey Kong, but that’s it. It stays black. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Don

I'm on PC, so I can't help directly with MAME on the Mac. With a quick Google search, though, I found a couple of videos which might help. The second one in particular addresses the black screen problem:
