last night I tried to resolve the suspend issue in my laptop with elementary OS by installing Netext73 optimizer.

Now I am unable to use my pendrives. (The led indicator works; mouse/keyboard works but no pendrives). On doing sudo fdisk -l, it recognizes the pen drive(but does not mount). The following is the output:

P.S. The suspend issue still persists.

If it is exfat, you will need to install the files below.

Many sd cards seem to have this format by default (out of the box).

sudo apt install exfat-fuse 
sudo apt install exfat-utils

It is normal that USB drives does not get auto-mounted in elementary OS. Moreover, if fdisk lists them, it means that they get recognized.
