Tim says:

In Japanese you write 「デジタル」. Because of this, many Japanese assume the English spelling is “degital”. Actually, it’s “digital”; apparently this word was adopted into Japanese before it became common to represent the “di” sound as 「ディ」.

So now you know the correct spelling, and I just learned what a “digital perm” is!
