Default Bitlocker Questions

I purchased a usb drive recently I formated it in exFAT format and used bitlocker that came with W7U to protect the drive. Had three questions.

1: How safe is bitlocker?
2: What are the disadvantages for using it?
3: Why can't I write files to the usb drive from a PC running Windows XP?

I tried to copy some files on my work computer and it says the drive is full, it's far from full. The work PC does not have bitlocker but will prompt me to enter my password when I do I can copy files from the drive but not too it.
