For anyone, who can′t run this game, try Rejzor′s NextGen patch installer:
Or veg′s modern patch 1.6.1 (in the time of this writing):
In both cases, you need to download the ISO from here and then mount it - Windows 10 has built in features for this, while for older Windows system I recommend WinCDEmu or similar.

I have installed the game successfully. But now it says - You need to have the disk inserted in the disk drive.
What should I do now? I do not want to have the iso mounted at all times. Please help.

It works great on Windows7. However there are many enough times when it won′t start. I have the original CD with this game and from the original CD it works just fine. I will try on winXP or win98SE.
The automenu.exe worked. but when i click Install, it says…
Need For Speed 3 files are corrupted; please re-install…
how could I fix it?
I don′t have a CD-ROM to download NFS III on PC. Can you get a CD-ROM to install this?
Thank you so much..my cd was scratched and wouldn′t install..YOU ROCK
I remembere having so much fun with this… downloading player created cars that was insane.. it was a good game 🙂 especially at lan parties!!! oh i miss those!
JHN, welcome to the world of classic Windows gaming. There′s no way around having the CD inserted/mounted, as the game streams data/audio from it. This is extremely common for PC games from 1994-2004.
BTW, this game is awesome and this copy works great on my Win98 PC.
