I am trying to disassemble some various files, and IDA does not recognize them. Is there anyway to add more file types to IDA Pro? I am running ida 6.5

You would need to create a Loader plugin for them. See the ldr directory in the IDA Pro SDK.

Once the Loader is built, you would copy it to the loaders subdirectory under IDA Pro's directory.

Here's a nice blog entry on writing IDA Pro file loaders in higher level languages: http://www.hexblog.com/?p=110
