[電腦] 請問 "disc" 與 "disk" 的差別為何?

如題,請問 "disc" 與 "disk" 的差別為何?

經查 Yahoo! 奇摩字典後仍無法比較出其差異點……

disc

1. 圓盤; 盤狀物; 圓平面

例:he disc ofthe full moon 狀如圓盤的滿月

2. 【解】盤, 板, 片

3. 【植】花盤

4. 唱片; 錄像圓盤

5. 【電腦】磁盤

6. 【廢】鐵餅

disk

1. 圓盤; 盤狀物; 圓平面

2. 【解】椎間盤

3. 【植】花盤

4. 唱片; 錄像圓盤

5. 【電腦】磁盤

6. 【廢】鐵餅

這樣不就沒什麼差別嗎?

我比較想知道的是在【電腦】方面的差別!

記得以前 "5 1/2" 及"3.5" 吋軟碟的時代看到的是用 "disk";

反之,現在的光碟則大都用"disc"。

上述為在下所猜測,故請回答者提供回答的依據!

本人屬於問到底的個性,沒把握者請不必回答,謝謝!

    您好

    關於您的問題在英語教學網站有這樣解釋,字數很多,分好幾段回答

    For the most part, disc and disk can be used interchangeably to describe flat, round objects such as saucers or Frisbees. The British as a whole tend to prefer disc, while Americans generally use disk as their default spelling. Historically, the word disk entered the popular vernacular first, sometime during the 17th century. Many English words were formed from Germanic roots, which explains the use of a final hard K sound in words such as desk, whisk, task and disk.在大部分場合中disc與disk都可用來形容扁平的圓形物體,像是茶杯咖啡杯的托盤或是飛盤等。大部分英國人比較喜歡用disc,而美國人則比較慣用disk的拼法。就歷史觀點來看,在十七世紀的時候disk比較早在一般大眾日常用語中被使用,許多的英文單字都是由日爾曼語系所發展而來的,這可以從desk、task及disk等這些字的最後一個字採用比較重音的K得到解釋。Several centuries later, however, there was a movement towards incorporating Latin roots whenever possible. The Latin word discus, for example, was a more accurate predecessor for the newly-minted English word disc. The word disc was used to describe the flat, round recording medium used to play phonographrecords. A person who played these musical discs for a living would be called a "disc jockey." The association between the "disc" and audio or video recording devices has continued to the present day. 數世紀之後可能因為語言加入了拉丁語系之後而有些改變。舉例來說,拉丁字中鐵餅discus比較像是近代才發展出來的英文字disc的前身。後來disc這個字被用來形容可以在留聲機上播放的一種有儲存聲音的扁平圓形媒體。而專業播放這些音樂discs的人被稱為”disc jockey”D.J.。因此到現今的年代一提到存放錄製這些聲音或影像的物品人們馬上聯想到的字就是disc--唱片。

    The word disk, on the other hand, became associated with another form of magnetic storage. The computerindustry uses the "disk" spelling as shorthand for "diskette." A round piece of magnetic recording material protected by a hard shell is known as a hard disk,
