>>Can't you just duplicate file name to reel name in your bins?

Not if you're going to conform using the original camera files, which don't have the unique ID.

Michael is right (as he almost always is). The dailies were done incorrectly (also a common occurrence). That needs to be addressed unless every shot has unique time code. If there is no duplicate time code (i.e., not shot over multiple days, not more than one camera) it should conform based solely on time code. But that is not the norm. The other question is what is in the CamRoll column. That might be usable as well, as in Avid you can select what is in the Reel column on an EDL when you make one using the List Tool (under "formatting).
