This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

How is this a duplicate from… he is talking about partitions, i am talking about USB... or are the actions the same? – blade19899 Oct 12 '12 at 14:35
BitLocker is the proprietary Windows encryption. In order to read it you need a decryption soft. These are linked to above - procedures are the same. It would only marginally be on topic for AU anyway. Nevertheless we do hope you can access your files :) – Takkat Oct 12 '12 at 14:45

Bitlocker is proprietary and only designed for Windows. You need to remove the encryption in Windows in order to use the USB stick in Linux.

There is an experimental tool to access bitlocker encrypted folders in Linux called dislocker. However, there is no guarantee it will work.
