Awesome game, my favourite of the series.
At the time the graphics with a 3DFX were probably the best in any racer on the pc. It had fantastic wheel support, awesome tuneage, stacked up great on a LAN, and a first for DLC content, giving us the Lister Storm.
The mod scene mad the game even more.

Most of the games I download are missing (or it seems like it is missing) a few files. Some don't even have the installer on them.

I still own this game on the original CD, of course I can't play it on the CD because I have Windows 10

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.

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 don't have a CD-ROM to download NFS III on PC. Can you get a CD-ROM to install this?

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.
