Recently, I refreshed my USB stack because I was restarting and an external drive and USB drive were not showing until I unplugged them and plugged them back in. Now, every now and then, when I try to move files onto my external drive, I get a BSOD with this error. I am on Vista Home Basic x86.

Try...uninstalling the USB controllers (in Device Manager) and rebooting. They will automatically reinstall.

I just did this recently though, that's what refreshing the USB stack is. I need to do it again? How can I do it just for the USB port my external is connected to, how do I know which port that is in Device Manager?

In Device Manager, two devices have the caution symbols by them:

Also, I could be looking at the wrong event but when I go to the System tab in Event Viewer, there's information on an error earlier today:

The Parallel port driver service failed to start due to the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
