If you really create new frames (and not launch a new emacs instance),
then I serriously doubt that you cannot see all the buffers from all
the frames.  Use C-x C-b in all your frame and check that you get the
same buffer list from every frame.

To create a new frame, you can use C-x 5 2 or M-x make-frame RET
