To me as a native of the North American idiom, "disc" looks more
correct in that use. But I'd also bring up "dis[ck] jockey" for
someone who spins recordings, eg for a radio station, with the implied
meaning of "dis[ck]"; in that case too I've seen both spellings but
"disc" looks more correct to me.
Cf. Terry Pratchett's "discworld" books....
