    Etymology-Man, to the rescue!

    I would assume "disc" is correct due to it coming from the Latin word "discus"... Though "disk" is generally used for magnetic storage, while "disc" is used for optical media.

    I was always taught that it was correct to use disc for anything IT related

    Anyhow, disc is a much nicer word to look at...

    As I understand it the reason for the use of disk in connection with computers is similar to the use of program rather than programme ie they are American versions that became common once computers started to become more common. For the same reason I am forced to use color rather than the correct colour when programming!

    Apparently disk was the original word used in English until a fashion for ascribing Latin origins to words made disc more appealing.
