The problem you may be having is that the ROM may be a newer one.
Currently MameCE3 is based on MAME .36. As MAME Progresses the ROMS change on occasion, thereby making them not compatible with older versions of MAME and MameCE3.
If I get some time in the neer future I hope to get a new release based on more current code. Its been a bad year for me and not much time to devote to development.
If you ask around specifically in chat rooms or newsgroups you can always find someone with older Romsets.
Hope that helps.
