I don't think you need the quotes ("").

Try this format

render -r mr -rd C:\maya\projects\HamsterPunch\imageFolder_1 C:\maya\projects\HamsterPunch\scenes\HamsterPunchScene1.mb
render -r mr -rd C:\maya\projects\HamsterPunch\imageFolder_2 C:\maya\projects\HamsterPunch\scenes\HamsterPunchScene2.mb
render -r mr -rd C:\maya\projects\HamsterPunch\imageFolder_3 C:\maya\projects\HamsterPunch\scenes\HamsterPunchScene3.mb

-rd (render directory) just tells it where to save the images and the directory after that is where it finds the scene to be rendered. It may be a bit long winded but I like it this way as it doesn't have to be in the scene folder for the bat to work. If you were to use:

render -r mr -rd C:\maya\projects\HamsterPunch\imageFolder_3 HamsterPunchScene3.mb

then the bat will not work if its not in the scene folder, well thats what happens to me.

edit: for whatever reason the formatting here makes it look like I inserted a space in my scene name :shrug:

I use this format:

Render -r mr -rt 4 -cam camera1 -s 1 -e 300 -v 5 -proj X:\Project scene.mb

Wit this format you can put the file anywhere.
