Well this seems like the perfect thread for the new software forum!

I decided to open my factory sealed copy of Star Wars: Rebel Assault II The Hidden Empire

Here we have the outter box

I found it quite off how they labled them as DISK and not DISC 😎

This should answer your question: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spelling_of_disc

Interesting but even if "disc" is supposed to be more popular in British English, over here in the states I have always encountered optical media spelled as DISC in a commercial context. Very rarely have I seen anyone other than consumers use DISK instead of DISC. Even when CD's came out it was "Compact Disc". So you would think there would be an established precedent.
