Thanks in advance,
Dryer plug not compatible with my plug
Thanks in advance,
By "regular 3-prong outlet" do you mean one that you might plug a lamp or toaster into? If so, a new 240 volt line will need to be installed and an appropriate wall outlet as that outlet is only for 120 volts.
If you mean the old dryer plug had a 3 prong plug and the new has a 4 prong plug, either the wall outlet will need to be replaced (and possibly a new power line installed to it) or the cord on the dryer will need to be changed to a 3 terminal one.

It seems that I'll need to get a new line installed as the 3-prong plug that I was referring to is the type that you would plug a regular toaster into.
