As a quick follow up, the spelling "disc" is probably a variation of the word 
discus, the heavy flat disk that is thrown in the Olympics. The original Greek 
word that disk and discus derives from is diskos. Offhand, I don't know what 
the spelling was changed from k to c for the word discus but I suspect it has 
to do with the hard k sound being followed by a vowel or something.
