I created custom master page, and I created feature for top navigation menu. My custom master page works fine, but not on the application/_layouts pages; viewlsts.aspx, settings.aspx, etc.. I only see one level, I can't see the other levels as I customized in my master page. How can I see them?

The application pages from SharePoint do not inherit the top navigation of the master pages, they use their own top navigation.

Here is the aspx code from the settings page.

<%@ Register TagPrefix="wssuc" TagName="TopNavBar" src="~/_controltemplates/TopNavBar.ascx" %>
<asp:Content contentplaceholderid="PlaceHolderTopNavBar" runat="server">
    <wssuc:TopNavBar id="IdTopNavBar" runat="server" Version="4" ShouldUseExtra="true"/>
