But what happened with these other Death Notes?

The Shinigamies probably collected them after the user died.
Ryuk mentioned that he will stick by lights side until he dies or the pages run out of space, I guess this was the case with the previous Death Note owners as well. It is also considered a great crime to lose your death note and return to shinigami world without it, as we see the third shinigami is seeking his note and can't get it back because it is in a humans possession.
