Can't find Mental Ray texture

Was originally going to use a mental ray texture but got distracted and did something else half way through working on it. Re-did the step later by creating another one and now when I try rendering, maya is looking for mentalraytexture1 still. How do I find this?

Yeah Sometimes they don't show up in the hypershade >> Textures tab... when they are created within something like misss_fastshader.

You can type into the mel command line: select -r mentalrayTexture1;

From there, in the hypershade you can select >> Graph >> Add Selected to

Then, Graph both the inputs AND outputs ... >> Graph >> Input and Output Connections

So there you can see how its being used....

For a larger overview of nodes in maya, and to search quickly, try the >>Window>> Hypergraph: Connections.

Good luck,
