mental ray batch render errors - university final piece please help

hiya

ive been having some problem batch rendering in mental ray from maya 8 on an intel 2.16ghz imac with 1.5gb ram.

recently mental ray has become temperamental, sometimes batch rendering and sometimes not. this is the log when i try to bathc render 15 frames. previous to this i have been able to render 210 frames and 100 frames on separate occasions.

Starting "/Applications/Alias/maya8.0/Maya.app/Contents/bin/maya"

mental ray for Maya 8.0
mental ray: version 3.5.1.2, 15 Jun 2006, revision 18552

i am guessing it has something to do with the 'undefined instance' errors. the spotlight mentioned is in a file referenced by the scene i am trying to render.

this is for a final project for university and seeing as i have never had this problem before i have no idea how to remedy it

any help would be greatly appreciated

thanks
tom
