You cant render certain particle types using the Maya Software renderer. You will need to use the Hardware Render Buffer to render the just the particles and then use a compositing software such as Adobe After Effects to combine the software render with the hardware render.

Not good news, I know, but that's just how it is I'm afraid.

However, the Effects>Create Smoke particle type is handled by the software renderer, so if you are having problems with that let us know
