If you go look at the result codes for errors, it says this for #3:

3:  Your server sent incomplete or inappropriate data.  Check your station
  information for invalid characters (numbers, letters and spaces are the
only accepted values for most entries) and reconnect the Source plug-in to
try again.

once you fix this.. You'll get error #404:

404:  This typically means you're running software that isn't a SHOUTcast
  DNAS server.  The only supported software for listings in the SHOUTcast
  directory is the SHOUTcast DNAS.  Occasionally this will show up on
  servers with very very slow Internet connections as well.  It should
  clear itself up with time
