Most likely this is either an issue with your storage groups
configuration (i.e. missing some directories in some of you storage
group definitions) or a hostname issue--i.e. the "missing" recordings
were recorded by a different host from the one that currently has them. 
The 2nd possibility--the hostname issue--would even be transparent to
playback in some configurations (with the storage group directories NFS
mounted to frontend machines).
