Once an artwork "type" has been added for one movie, that "type" will become available to you for all other movies.
So, once the "disc" artwork type is added for one movie (using Artwork Downloader), Kodi will then offer "disc" as an option in "Choose art" for all your other movies.
You can then manually add "disc" artwork to your movies, or continue to use Artwork Downloader to automatically add this artwork, but Kodi will not automatically
recognise "disc" artwork no matter what naming convention you use.

You mean you want Artwork Downloader to support the movie-name prefix naming convention - it's been asked for before, and I believe is on the list of things to do. Until it is supported you should not enable "Use local files".
An alternative tool for loading local artwork is mklocal.py
(this post might be a little out of date so read the mklocal.py built-in help if this interests you) - it can be used to find local artwork and add it to your library, creating new artwork types if required, and it support movie-name prefix.
It can also be used to convert remote artwork to local artwork, which is useful when executing Artwork Downloader with "Use local files" disabled, ie. run Artwork Downloader with "Use local files disabled", followed by mklocal.py to convert remote artwork to local artwork optionally using the movie-name prefix naming convention. If you ever need to reload this artwork into a fresh library, just use mklocal.py (no need for AD).
