I think most of those files are on your internal sd card and I think that is what you are seeing.

Typically some applications save files in alternate locations and use different files extensions than what Android recognizes. Like it will only save music extensions like .MP3 or .FLAC, as Audio...

However, I know sometimes Applications use weird file extensions and Android gets confused, then labels them as Misc.

This happens when music is Cached in Google Music. It saves them as weird file types, not Audio and they are all in Misc.

Hope this helps
