Typically you would copy the files to the Avid MediaFiles/MXF/ folder. Launch Media Composer and import the AAF file. This should relink automatically. Then highlight all the master clips created from the AAF import and do a "merge ALE" into those clips (see import settings for shot log - last check box).

I do not recommend importing an ALE and doing a relink - while it can work, it can be more problematic for audio relinking and there have been reports of files becoming unlinked down the road. The AAF has the ID needed for the clips' picture and sound essence.

If the AAF does not automaticaly relink, then there might be a problem with the AAF - next thing to try is put those files into their own numbered folder, then from a bin, import the mob.msm file (can't remember which one exactly, I am not in front of a system right now) that is in the folder after you launch MC. Then do the ALE merge as mentioned.
